I have ONE Rufous Hummer seen well yesterday, aside from a couple Allen’s. No hummers in my garden to speak of yet. Bottle-brush tree in full bloom…..Go figure…..

> Hi all: Just so you’ll have a heads up: spring bird migration is in progress, although a bit slow to see right now. Remember last spring how windy it was? We may not get such a show this year, because the birds aren’t clogged up by the winds, but trust me, they are coming through! If you have a water feature of any kind in your yard or off your balcony, the birds will thank you in this dry year. Just to see the Yellow-rumped Warblers in full breeding garb (!) combined with some of the orioles and the Black-headed Grosbeaks is enough to get you started. I really like making an eBird list when I’m looking out at my backyard, too.

Many are in full breeding attire and look gorgeous!
