I thought all my hummingbirds had moved on. Imagine my surprise when I looked up today to see not one but two still in the yard.
Perhaps the change in the weather brought them to me, as it also brought several Monarch butterflies to the yard this week, as well as the Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers that I told you about earlier in the week. No matter the time of the year or the weather, there's always something interesting happening in the backyard. Today it was hummingbird stragglers and a little green and black garter snake sunning itself on the rocks beside the fish pond. What will it be tomorrow?
Whatever it is, I won't be here to see it because early tomorrow, I'm heading out to Colorado for ten days. I can't wait to see some mountains again and maybe some new birds. Blogging may be sporadic during this period, but, rest assured, when I see something really interesting, I'll report it to you here!
