Wednesday Vignette: Bird Feeder

Here's a vignette that I snapped through my dining room window. The bushtits, twenty to thirty at a time, gather on my Japanese Clethra and wait their turn to snack on the suet squares filled with insects. The Dictator, our resident male hummingbird, is coming in for a flyby. Dick, as I call him, prefers the garden to himself and tries to kick us all out except when his feeders need to be filled.  Then he cha-cha-chas back and forth in front of me.  A couple of days ago, he flew inside the den to get our attention, then resumed his cha-cha-cha on the patio. I'm his meal ticket and he knows it. 

Don't forget to stop by and visit our hostess, Anna at Flutter and Hum, to see her Wednesday Vignette and all the others.
