I have had a female hummer coming to my feeder for about a week and a half.
I have shrimp plants
blooming in my back yard and had seen one maybe a month ago but didn't know
it was still around.
It's either ruby-throated or black-chinned; I'm not fool enough to make a
guess. There is no color in the chin, only the streaks. She was quite
and any movement in the house frightened her away. When I first put the
feeder out, she didn't seem to know what it was and took some time to begin
feeding from it. Now she's a regular.
I don't have Terry Johnson's address. So, Terry,
if you pick this up, you may want to stick your banding material in your
suitcase when you pack to come down for the Weekend for Wildlife this
weekend. It would save you an extra trip.
