My hummingbird is back. And the corkscrew willow is new to our yard. My husband planted it this spring. And it leans a little and had to be supported in the winds. So Husband put part of a towel around a branch with a string attached and tied it to the fence. Hummingbird arrived and although there’s a hanging feeder for him, he was attracted to the towel in the willow. He must have thought it was a flower because he flew straight for it, nearly bumping into it.
But then he tried to taste it. Didn’t work, but he kept trying. Poor baby! I really think I must talk to Husband about this. What do you think?
