First of Season Hummingbirds

Last year we really enjoyed watching the hummingbirds come to the feeder on our patio.  For the past month or so I've been regularly changing the nectar and tracking ruby throated hummingbird sightings on the web. I saw the first one on Friday around lunch time and we've had steady visits since then. Perhaps it is the same pair that lived on our hillside last year or their children.  I've been busy and the weather has been a bit wet and cold this week so I don't have any inspiring garden pictures, but I found photos of the female hummingbird that Dylan took last year. Ruby throated hummingbirds are actually pretty common but every time I see one I am still amazed that such a magical little creature exists and it comes to my patio.

Also, if you are interested, Dylan added an RSS feed thing.
