Sunny, 70 degrees, pleasant breeze. There are 6 nectar feeders in the habitat (located in favored places from past years :) Today’s guests appeared at different times during the day, each used a different feeder; quickly fueled up, and flew north.
Our “residents” traditionally arrive between May 6th and May 8th.
While walking I’ve noticed “cat tail fluff” is not as readily available in our ditches as it’s been in previous years. This is an important nesting material.
Image shows an example of small tree branches for resting, perching and red bows to announce availability of nectar / up since Monday, April 22.
