Like everything else this year, the hummingbird migration is late. In previous years we see the Rufous hummingbird here at the end of July, and in August I usually go through 10 lbs of sugar a week for our three feeders. This year the migration started last week, and no Rufios in sight. Right now it is mainly females (difficult to identify) and some young Black-chinned males. Being on the patio is dangerous as even we are seen as "feeder competitors". Stand back, please!
