Today at Lost River: Hummingbirds

Saturday Critters / I'd Rather Be Birdin'

Today I crossed the mountains into West Virginia and visited Lost River State Park. I've been there quite a few times including family visits when I was a child.

There was a hummingbird feeder but the birds were rather shy. I sat on a bench about seven feet away and waited for the birds to return. They did, and I got pictures with both my cell phone and my regular camera. 

I was planning to share more of these but my eyes are tired and bleary so I just picked out two favorites. 


  1. Pretty hummers!! I'd sit and wait for their return too.
    Enjoyed your post, and photos. Thanks for linking up this week at IRBB.

  2. Hello Linda,
    You picked two great Hummingbird photos. It is neat seeing four at one time at the feeder. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy day and a great new week! PS, thank you for the comment on my blog.

  3. ...I have only seen one year.

  4. Nice shots of the hummers. They are fun to watch. Happy Sunday!

  5. Good to see the little darlings...thanks for posting them!

  6. You chose beautifully -- what a great hummer watching spot! Sallie (FullTime-Life)

  7. Cutest birds! Not to be seen here...

  8. How lucky you were to see them Linda, it really is an amazing sight to see them hovering like this. I'm not sure if we even have hummingbirds here, so I'll just enjoy yours 😊💙

  9. So many hummers!!! I have three feeders, but it only seems to attract one pair so far! :)
