Each season in TomatoTown, we’ve been awed by the sass and speed of visiting hummingbirds. Like small fighter planes, they defend their territory driving off rival birds from the nectar feeders. We’ve learned that one bird often claims a single feeder, so we have several strategically placed so one bird cannot guard multiple feeders.  We enjoy watching them zing around the yard, so we also supplement the feeders with flowers they favor.

We were on the verge of cutting down this dead sunflower when we noticed it was a favorite perch of one of our hummingbirds and Farmer T captured this little lady sitting on a branch. Despite the fact the sunflower has seen better days, we’ve decided to keep it.
