Hummingbird, Ruby-throated (FIRST)

Date: 05/03/2007

Number: 1

The first male 'scout' arrived 5/1, followed the next day with two more males. I know a group will be arriving in afew days, stay about a week, have a feeding frenzy and leave. In the meantime, many more pairs will arrive and they too will leave after the feeding freenzy. Finally, the summer residents will arrive, they are also the first to leave at the end of the summer. They become very territorial and scold if the feeders aren't filled in the morning, or if I interrupt them and open the door. They don't like visitors on the back porch and will actually buzz their heads.
