Napoleon, the boss hummingbird is back, having made a successful trans-Gulf flight from his winter quarters in Mexico or south Florida. He went right to where the feeder had been hanging the last few summers. Took a few minutes this morning to make some nectar and give the feeder an overdue scrub. Not long afterward, a second hummingbird appeared.

Napoleon surveys his domain in the Arkansas Ouachitas from the bottom half of our flag staff. We took the top half, with flag, inside in anticipation of some heavy thunderstorms earlier in the week.

  1. What a sweet guy. We get them coming through our backyard here in Northern California. One was about two feet away from my face the other day…amazing! He/she just hovered there!

  2. We buy hanging pots that attract hummingbirds. I know they are very territorial, and we sometimes watch them duke it out. I love that you named yours Napoleon! I used to have a little turtle named Napoleon.
