Hummingbird, Ruby-throated (FIRST)

Date: 04/09/2007

Number: 1

After a very cold Easter weekend, with most nectar plants just a blackened, frostbitten mess, I had my first male Rubythroat zip across my yard and start working my Coral Honeysuckle.

I had wrapped the plant in two old bedspreads each night and secured them with clothespins. It is in full bloom at least 2 weeks ahead of schedule, and I figured that it was my best shot for saving a food source for them.

I was glad to see that this brave little male was going about business...and that my plant survived pretty much intact to give him some needed food.
