Hummingbirds are now welcome in downtown Pocahontas. Several businesses in the downtown National Historic District have hung feeders for hummers outside hoping the little fellows will discover this abundant food source and start hanging around. People of all ages seem to enjoy the antics of these amazing birds. Ours are all ruby throated hummers who’ve recently arrived from South America on their annual journey north. Thy seem to really appreciate the welcoming gesture of their favorite food, sugar water. At the same time, their arrival is timed to coincide with the spring flowering of trees–they even seem to visit the oak catkins now hanging abundantly in our local forests.
