May 5, 2017 – the First Hummingbird of the Spring

The first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of the season arrived at our feeder . . . three days earlier than last year.  Its’s been a cold, dreary spring and its a delight to see this tiny bird zipping in and out.

We’ve had their feeders out for 6 days . . . we put them out last weekend when the migration map showed them approaching our area.

First female (about 9:00) and the first male arrived about noon.

We hope the Baltimore Orioles arrive tomorrow.

Late in the day I got a photo of the under appreciated Red-winged Blackbird (you go girl!!!).
