The adult male rufous hummingbird continues to visit our feeders and things have worked out very well with people using the bench we have set for viewing him. He usually feeds for the first time around 7:00 am and visits as often as every 5 - 10 minutes until the temperature warms up to about 45 degrees. After it warms, he gradually slows down to about once per hour and continues until 3:30 or 4:00. If anyone is looking for an outdoor socially distance diversion this weekend or over the Thanksgiving holiday period feel free to email me at <pamerlins...> for the "protocol". I have also attached pictures of the info to an eBird checklist for the stakeout hotspot on 11/16.
