Kitties, after a LONG summer without sightings, we finally have a frequent visitor, a female ruby throated hummingbird.
She has been drinking such a lot that Dad at one point thought she was TWO, but we have never seen them around together so we are fairly sure there is only one thirsty one.
Our feeder has test tube style tubes with red caps, and in this first, longer video, you can see her going to both of the tubes of sugar water. Due to so much zooming, the picture is not super clear, but we think you will get to see enough.
In this second short video, she is feeding from the red bee balm flowers. Excuse our comfiness towels across the deck railing to dry after the rain!
Audrey thinks she would be very nommy if only she could catch her, but we know that would make Dad very very upset. However, GJ threw down the gauntlet by catching a sparrow the other day, so Audrey doesn't want to be outdone.
