What you need to get ready for the warm weather and those delightful Spring hummingbirds

As spring weather begins to appear in Kentucky, many of us begin to think about flowers and birds. Hearing the singing of our feathery friends brings the promise of warmer weather, lots of sunshine and days outdoors after a long winter trapped inside. A new sense of freedomĀ  begins rising up in our souls.

Digging out the hummingbird feeder is one of the first springtime chores to be done. Getting hummingbirds humming around the deck or garden gives one the feel that summer is just ahead.

Hummingbirds in the U.S. and around the world have the benefit of being garden and backyard favorites. Many people put out hummingbird feeders or grow flowers that attract hummingbirds in the warmer months that allow these birds to refuel during their long migratory journeys. What's in sight is often in mind, and many fans of hummingbirds are doing what they can to keep every backyard, park and garden a friendly place for these beautiful birds.
