Forgot to mention that the hummingbirds are passing through on their way
south. Have seen several over the past few days and put the test feeder up
this morning. Several little heliocopters have been fighting over it since
so guess I'll put up a couple more. Looks to be mostly ruby throat females
although it is difficult for me to tell the ruby throat and black chin
females apart. Did see one immature male ruby throat but a bigger female
ran him off. Back to the patio door.
