First of the Season (FOS)

Yesterday I had rufous hummingbirds zipping through the yard so I hung up a couple of hummer feeders. Couldn't have been an hour later, there was a male rufous visiting the feeder. Of course it took the ants a little longer to reach it, but there they are. The chickens will get the ants, the hummers will get the sugar water, and I'll keep the binos handy.

For a broader picture on rufous migrations, check out the Journey North site.
