More hummers arrive

Though groggy from another late night hacking away at the keyboard, I managed to get outside for a walk behind the Staunton-Augusta Rescue Squad this beautiful morning:

The juncos and kinglets [see Apr. 27] are gone, but there are still lots of White-throated sparrows hanging around. I'm pretty sure I heard a male Yellow warbler singing in the bushes, but he never came out.

Just as we were sitting down for dinner this evening, a male Ruby-throated hummingbird showed up at our nectar feeder for the first time this spring. That was nice.
