I’m very glad that a couple of Ruby-throated Hummingbird are back and I got the feeling that are building their nest by the pine trees.
They are the most playful and cheerful couple. They love to play ‘tag’
like children. I’m hoping that they’ll stay until migration time.
I really enjoy seeing them how they observe the other birds from a high branch and once in a while they hover around them.
It wasn’t my only treat to see the hummingbirds because I had a surprise visit of a Gray Catbird that I haven’t seen in long time. This bird is very elusive and is not very social but this time I had him for long time, enough to shot a number of pictures.
It’s a coincidence to have him in a rainy day like the previous visit.
As you can imagine I had my fun moments thanks to the rain!
