It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere

Now that summer’s here in “Hotlanta”, the activity at the feeders has turned to a trickle. Still, a steady stream of birds have been stopping by to enjoy a drink.

There are some who sip…

And of course there’s always that one fellow that ends up getting slap happy dunked!

Morning, noon, and just before night, the birds keep showing up for a bit of refreshment to help beat the heat.  Guess it’s true what they say – “It’s five o’clock somewhere!”
