I Have Some Little Hummingbirds

I Have Some Little Hummingbirds
I have some little hummingbirds
Living around my house.
None are quiet like a mouse.
They fly to a red feeding station.
And lap up the food with great elation.
I have some little hummingbirds
They eat like some very hungry hogs
With tiny tongues lapping like cute dogs.
Those tiny tongues go really very fast
Twenty laps per second is soooooooooo fast!
I have some little hummingbirds
They keep me busy making their food.
1 to 1 ratio of sugar and water is good.
They like my cooled boiled drink.
They sip and sip and leave in a wink.
I have some little hummingbirds
They chase each other without a doubt
Like kamikaze pilots--hey look out!
Each demands its very own space.
So each other they constantly chase.

I took some hummer pictures yesterday but don't know if I got anything - such flitting and diving! Mine go after the red flowers, so at least I'm not kept busy mixing their feast.

Joann: Really cute prose about your hummers. It captured their movement perfectly.
