Kevin mowed the yard, this morning. In the meantime, a few Great-tailed Grackles and a Blue Jay sat under the tree. They watched Kevin and the lawn mower very carefully. Every time he came close to them, they hopped away. When he turned around to mow a different section, they hopped back to their spot under the shading tree. Kevin was amused by watching these birds. He said, they hopped synchronized back and forth on the lawn. The main reason for this hopping around was the food in the bird feeder. Once Kevin was done with mowing the lawn, the birds were all over the bird food. Some House Sparrows and some Northern Cardinals came over for brunch, too.
This commotion caught the interest of the little hummingbird, which resides in the neighbor’s tree. It observed the other birds eating some seeds, looked a little bit further and saw these beautiful hyacinth bean blossoms. Zooom! It’s brunch time for the hummingbird!
