Not as spectacular as last year's Rufous in our yard (and this year's Kane
bird), we've got our 1st ever November Ruby-throat visiting our nectar
feeders today, and for the last several days.

Our feeders were also graced by two visits by a leucistic goldfinch,
totally white except for the black wings (a male I think). But we haven't seen
him for a couple of days and fear that the beacon of his almost all white
plumage made him easy prey for the various accipiters that haunt our yard.
