    The hummingbird population here at the ranch is now in very full swing. Friends asked me how many hummers I was feeding, and I have to say I have no idea.

    Counting hummingbirds at my four feeders is like counting the legs on a herd of cattle, then dividing by four, as an old timer told me a long time ago. I wish I had stock in a sugar producing company at this time of year. And thankfully we have lots of mountain flowers in full bloom now for these little birds to enjoy as well.
