By the way: My computer is uber-slow today, and I forgot to mention that I saw my first rufous hummingbird at our feeder this evening, about an hour before the sun set.
I had been standing at the window, thinking that it was about time to take the feeder down, and here comes a female rufous!!! True story!
For the non-birders in the audience: Rufous hummers are not a usual hummingbird to see in the eastern U.S. But they have been showing up at feeders later in the year over the past few years, and they are being seen because people have started to leave sugar-water feeders up past the usual Spet. 1st deadline.
