Saturday, June 11, 2016 Hummer Delight

Seward, Alaska

Sunrise 4:34 am, sunset 11:21 pm, for a total day length of 18 hours and 47 minutes. Tomorrow will be 1 minute and 33 seconds longer.

Two RUFOUS HUMMINGBIRDS have been very active at my feeder the past several days. The male and female take turns as they do NOT share, watching from a hidden perch for an opening to feed. It is such a joy to watch these midget marvels tank up.

I wonder where the female’s well-concealed nest is; I’ve never found a hummer nest in Alaska. I’ll be watching for mini-midgets after the babies fledge.

Keep those feeders clean and replenished!

Happy Birding!
