This morning while I was drinking my coffee pond side, I saw my first
hummer of the season.  It was followed shortly thereafter by a wild
turkey.  The turkey didn't stay long and didn't come near the pond.
Then just as I was getting up I noticed an oriole gathering bits and
pieces to build a nest.  I think I'll have another cup of coffee and see
what else arrives.

What's in your coffee?  A hummer and a turkey at one sitting is straight
out of Eden.  I have three bright red sugar feeders up and still not
even one hummer.  I'd like a cup of your coffee!

Hi Ruth,
You can stop in for coffee any morning!  We've had hummers here for many
years.  When I'm by the yard they sometimes buzz me.  Many people who've never
seen a hummer get there first glimpse of one in our yard.
I love it when they perch on the clothes line.  We can sometimes see them in
the tree, but that is much harder.

As for the turkeys, a few years ago they were released in our area and they
have done quite well.  It is not unusual to
see one in the morning and again in the evening.   I hear them quite often
when I'm walking.  There sound is definitely unique.

================================
That's why I almost always have my morning coffee (3 large cups) on the
porch.  I see all kinds of nature doing it's natural thing,... including a
good view of one of my ponds.  It sure beats the trash on morning TV.  :0)

Don't feel bad Ruth, I have never seen a hummingbird in my feeder (I have had
it 3 years) so I didn't bother putting it up this year. DH said where is that
red thing, the hummingbirds love it, I enjoy watching them he says. He said he
has seen as many as 6 at the feeder, still I have seen none. Still hoping to
see a hummingbird in Connecticut.
