It really, really is spring! I saw our first rufous hummingbird this morning. I had an earlier report that they were sighted on Salt Spring Island and I've been watching and waiting. Still, I was pretty surprised to see one hovering around the planters on the deck. It does take a while for these tiny birds to get this far north.
Must get feeder out of winter storage. There are no suitable flowers right now since everything is so late this year. I wouldn't want our yard to be passed by - we have always had at least one family resident all summer.
