HummyBooBoo, a Ruby Throated Hummingbird, came back this year. you can tell it’s her because she sits a lot, she’s kinda fat and she likes to beat up other birds. last year she beat up one of the goldfinches, stabbing and pinching the poor thing so hard it squealed and this year she attacked one of the carolina chickadees as well as any and every other hummingbird she could see and any nectar drunk bees who dare try to steal her gogo juice. I thinks she has now headed south for the winter, as we haven’t seen her in a few weeks…september 5, 2014

a rare late-season male Ruby Throated Hummingbird…september 6, 2014

usually they show up in late spring/early summer, knock up some lady hummingbirds and bugger off…this guy either has a girlfriend (is it our Hummy Boo Boo?) or is a straggler heading south from Canada.

Jaime Lannister, a Northern Cardinal, is staring down his nemesis, one of the Downy Woodpeckers that have become regular visitors. Jaime has had it in for the woodpeckers ever since one took a peck at Cersei. can’t find the woodpecker? look behind the suet…can you see it?

two male Goldfinches on the decapitated sunflowers…they’re gonna eat them anyway, so you might as well arrange it so you can enjoy the show and goldfinches are fairly unwary birds; I’m maybe 5 or so feet away…august 1, 2014
