Hi Jersey Birders, I apologize for having moved over to FaceBook with my reports, but FB frustrates me so I think I'm back. Lynn and I work year round to plant and maintain a Hummingbird Garden. Butterflies are always welcome, but right now Reds and Purples Reign supreme in the Garden and Hummers are tuned in. I have had 2-9 Hummers for the past 8+ weeks.
Today, due to a back issue, I was forced to spend the day on the decks photographing Hummingbirds. Boo Who...Right! A Banner day with 6 Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. Some were just passing thru...others will spend the night. I entered the info in Ebird with photos of all but one HY male that just went zooming thru ( https://ebird.org/nj/checklist/S60722336 )
Missing the Cape May weekend is awful, but having the hummers makes it easier to handle.
Good Birding to All! Enjoy the weekend... Harvey Tomlinson Del Haven, NJ
