Nectared several times again on plants until 8:30 then went back up to feeder. We are still in 50's at night.
Other notes;Last night in rain chubby male rubythroat went to kitchen window feeder before dusk at 7.
During afternoon he zig zagged mad at a yellow rumpled warbler when perched in River birch tree before rain started. We had a rubythroat pair last summer as a fledgling was sighted in June. Will see if they return eventually or this is the same male waiting around.
