Not a great picture, but fun to try and spot the fat, little hummingbird! With his tongue sticking out! Bittersweet time of year, when they're fattening up for their migration. They're slowing down and sitting still so it's a great opportunity to take pics. But it also means these summertime jewels will be leaving soon, and that really means the end of summer for me. And then I'll wait for their return next year...

Window Strike!!

It is so distressing when a bird strikes the window. It happens to us on a too regular basis. Seems that it is always the nice birds, never a Grackle or Starling. One year it was a black throated blue warbler and a kinglet. This migratory season we are starting off with a black and white warbler. This one I believe will survive. The migrants sure do have it rough.
