Hummingbird

It's hummingbird season! The first reports of hummingbirds we'd heard of in Guntersville was this week. In this piece, an Extension Service specialist talks about the best way to attract hummers and how people need to avoid using red dye in their hummingbird food. Guntersville photographer Bob Blankenship provided the photo. 

Spring is in the air. Temperatures are beginning to rise and flowers will soon begin to bloom. The fair weather and abundant supply of nectar will spring bee and butterfly populations upward. Homeowners may also find a hummingbird that has taken up residence in the back yard.
