Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

 I put my hummingbird feeder up over a week ago when I checked the migration map and saw that the birds had been spotted in New Hampshire. It wasn't very long before the hummingbirds arrived and I had to fill the feeder a bit fuller.

Dan and I enjoy sitting on the deck to watch the antics of the male trying to keep other males away. Yesterday one male has taken up residence on the staff and attacks any other hummingbird that comes close. I was finally able to get some almost in focus photos.  Problem is going through the glass of the sliding door compounded by shaking hands.
