#Tocktober: “Hummy ‘Tocks!”

featheres“Before the month is out I thought you might like to post some Fuzzy Hummy ‘Tocks! These belong to a Cute little Anna’s Hummingbird (we call her him Esmerelda Ernesto) that was kind enough to pose for some photos a while back while molting.” -Simon & Sarah in the SF Bay Area.


Would This Be Considered..A Honk-Shu?

Hey! Get Your OWN Feeder!

[This red stuff is made ‘specially for US, dig? Can’t you find some BIRD SEED somewhere??]


output_ps7ZBEIt’s 5pm PT on Friday, time for another TGIF, the best part of the week! “C.O., meet Mr. H. Just look at those toes!” Long time listener, first time caller!” –Emily T.

“♬ Splish Splash We Wuz Takin’ A Bath…♫”

Yes, yes, we did that header a year ago, but it’s just SOOOO OBVY. Anyway. Take a look at Mr. Hummer Man diving in for a bath. Over and over and over!

Snorgle A Hummingbird?

pot belleh 1“I’m submitting this photo I took of a Hummingbird exhibiting Rule #38,” comments Cuteporter -Lise C. [*Note: “If you have a curved, plump belleh, it’s cute.” -Ed.] “Alas, I wasn’t allowed close enough to Snorgle it. H-birds have pretty good BEF*, too! We love C.O.!”

[*BEF = Beady Eye Factor. And trying to Snorgle a Supersonic Hummingbird, while truly admirable, seems hopeless. If you do, photos please. -Ed.]
