It isn't time for us up here in the northeast, but all you southern readers, get ready, get your feeders out. Tamara wrote me last week. She's on the frontline of the migration, in Texas. The Hummingbirds are heading your way. The migration maps are up for 2010. See those sightings in Georgia??
It's a Channel Island Allen hummer. We don't get them east of the Rockies as a rule. Her nest is in a rose bush, with two eggs ready to hatch. One has a hole in it and is different in color from the other. I'm hooked.
And you up here in the Northeast... I'll give you a head's up on the feeders next month.
