Saturday Photo Hunt #12: EMPTY!



This week's theme is "EMPTY".


Hmmm ... What to post for the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt this week? I could post empty bowls, empty bags, Sparky Fuzzypants' empty head ...

Nah. Certainly other cats will post things like that ...

Oh, I know! It's SPRING once again and the hummingbirds are back in force! Mom puts special feeders up on the porch and in the backyard to provide food for the little buggers. And BOY ARE THEY THIRSTY! There are at least three feeders out at a given time and during the summer and fall, Mom often has to fill them all each day to keep up with the demand. We don't use the commercial red stuff that's sold in pet stores. Mom makes her own with cane sugar and water. The hummingbirds must really like the formula, 'cuz this is what our feeders look like: "EMPTY"!

That is really great that you make your own hummingbird food! I have started to think you can't trust any commercially prepared stuff.

We have several feeders, and the little fussy birds still argue over them! I like the feeders that the birds can sit on and drink :)
I just use sugar water too, and wish everyone would.

We had these feeders for the hummingbirds in Mississippi but we haven't seen any here. They are very fast and buzzy.
We like the chickadees that make noise outside the window. The lady lets us watch them, but we can't touch.

Sincerely,
Lady Willow

We're not allowed to "touch" them either ... We chatter at them, though ...

Oh, what fun to have a system in place so that birds come to your house to entertain you. Your mom is very thoughtful to arrange that.

I hope you are able to fill it soon for all your visitors. I'm sure they will miss it while it's gone. :)
