THEY'RE HERE!

The first of the migrant male Ruby-throated Hummingbirds has arrived in my backyard. And that means that, for the moment, I have two species of hummingbirds in my yard.

The female Rufous that wintered in the yard is still here today, but probably will be leaving soon.

If the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have arrived, can the Chimney Swifts be far behind?

  1. Awesome! Perhaps I should put a feeder out.

    1. Absolutely! If they are not in your yard yet, I'm sure they soon will be. Maybe sooner if you put that feeder out!

  2. Lovely, I have never seen a humming bird before, only on photos and on TV, you are fortunate to have them in your garden.

    1. Yes, they are treasures. It's always an event when they arrive.
