We have not seen any hummers in about a week. I might set the camera up later on today or tomorrow and record for the afternoon. Will keep the feeder out, but I think they might’ve gone.
The house sparrows have arrived, though. Quite a flock of them in our area, at least 30+ seen.
We had three barred owls serenade us a couple of nights ago. I even got to see one fly for the first time. Also got an audio of two of them scuffling, I think. We normally have at least two pairs in the area. The photo is of a immature barred owl, taken earlier this summer in my backyard. It had a broken wing. Rehab at Phoenix Wildlife Center.
