Hummingbird Season 2011

Our first Spring feeder went up March 11th.  First customer, a male black-chinned, March 12th.  Local lore says we'll see our first bird March 15th but hummers keep their own calendars...as we know from the wanderers who spent a good part of the winter here.

Now the first thing I do after I wake is run to the window to watch them perform their daily ablutions.  It's a good start to everyone's day.
