First Painted Bunting of the Season!

Sep 26, 2015 by Janine |
A lovely male painted bunting visited the feeders this morning. And there was much rejoicing.







Female ruby-throated hummingbirds have started arriving.



At least two males are here too.



Black swallowtail.



Haven't ventured much farther than my window for the past week- got a nasty bug bite and had to get all kinds of creams and antibiotics. Feeling better slowly- hoping to get out and do some birding before migration is over!

First hummingbird of the season!

The end of summer is in sight! This weekend we had our first ruby-throated hummingbird, as well as blue-gray gnatcatchers and bumblebees.













I was in Canada last week and noticed some leaves already starting to turn. Bring on the cooler weather!!!
