More Hummingbirds

Well, the last batch of hummingbirds may have disappeared, but we seem to have a new batch that just arrived. We’ve been having a warm spell that last two days, and I was out on the deck using the phone to attend a presentation. The hummingbirds were out on the deck belly up to the bar. I counted at least 6, and there were probably more.

We are on a migration path for the rufous hummingbird, so I suspect that these just stopped in for a snack on the way south. I really wonder how they find the feeder. Do they leave little marks around like hoboes? Do they have very good eyes? Good noses? You just gotta wonder..
