This has probably been going on all year, but I just noticed how much today.
I was out working on the edge of the addition to the gar river pond and seen
a hummingbird, then another. Several shoreline plants attract them. Of
course the favorite was cardinal flower, but wild hibiscus was another. Not
only do the ponds attract a large number of songbirds and other avians, the
hummingbirds come to the flowers as well. These shoreline plants may attract
them better than those hidden on trellaces or in thick flower beds. It is
easier for them to defend their feeding station, which they did quite well ,
against other hungry hummers.
