August has set the bar...could it get any better in September? All Spring through Summer I was looking for a Ruby Throated Hummer that I had seen over the past three years. Well, today makes it four years in a row as a Female Ruby Throated showed up at the feeder; what are the chances it is the same bird?
Also seen today was a Sharp Shinned Hawk in the backyard, which caused all the birds to quickly disperse. Here is a photo of the hummer at the feeder.
