Eyes on the Dollar 20/20 Roundup #44- Hummingbird Wars

Hummingbird FeederWe have tried for years to attract hummingbirds. One reason we never had many was that our dog, Ralph, used to jump up and knock down the hummingbird feeders to drink the nectar. He was a pretty mellow dog, and I’m not sure how he was acrobatic enough to manage it, but it seems no matter how high we put those suckers, he could get to them.

With Ralph off eating treats in doggie heaven, we have a slew of hummingbirds this year. They remind me of the scene in one of the Star Wars movies where all the spaceship are zipping around the city. It amazes me how much energy they spend on chasing each other away from the feeders. If they could share and not be so neurotic, they might realize there is more than enough to go around, but isn’t that true of many other creatures as well?

The upcoming week is going to be a pretty exciting one here, so stay tuned. I’ll give you a hint. It could involve virtual cake, and there is going to be lots of money given away. Make sure you stop back in!

I have a huge charity event for the Humane Society this evening. I am in charge of getting all the restaurant food that has been donated to the event venue. It’s one of the only times I wish I had a van. It should be a fun evening, and I hope I can refrain from the silent auction. There is always some really good stuff there. I guess it does all go to a good cause if I can’t stay away.

  1. I’ll bet life is a lot less exciting with Ralph gone.

    I have a Black Lab, Blackie “The Wonder Dog,” who swims like a fish. When I take him for walks by the wash he heads straight for the running water and jumps right in.

  2. Have fun at your charity event! Thanks for the mention and have a wonderful weekend!

  3. So cute! I have a few at my window and need to buy a feeder like yours so the come regularly.

  4. I appreciate the love Kim!! Looking forward to the exciting news! I love watching Hummingbirds too…they are so fast yet look so graceful and calm at the same time. I’m going to be crazy busy this week with work, the blog, and possibly teaching volleyball. Time management and getting up early I suppose!
