I dismantled our nectar feeder a few weeks ago since we had no sign of the hummers, but it looks like it's time to hang it out again. Last fall, when we first began birding here at West Campus, we had two hummingbird sightings - it would be great to see them again!
We've been watching the comings and goings of birds on campus for about eleven months now - and I'm curious to see what sort of repeat activity there will be come September. For example: What about those Phoebes? They were ubiquitous last fall - September through November. I assumed they had nested here - but there have been zero sightings of Eastern Phoebes since they departed in November!
|I think there were eleven Killdeer on the roof, seeking shade or a puddle!|
Twenty four species - and as I mentioned, blackbirds are in the vicinity - just a matter of time before we add a new bird to our species list... Boat-tailed Grackle maybe? Rusty Blackbird maybe?
