He's still here!

My late hummer (or possibly another even more recent  arrival) is still here! Yesterday afternoon I only had a short time before dark, the conditions were bad, and I did not see him. But this morning, though busy, I clearly spotted him in the flower bed overlooking the Sound in front of the deck at the front cabin "Seagull Lodge". He was visiting the rosebud salvias there. I'll try to get video, though I've lots of other things to do too.

  1. Thanks for the comment. This is the summer view from the front deck. The hummingbird is feeding at rosebud sage and the blue flowers are bog sage. The winter view is not so nice, though sometimes more dramatic. My last hummer sighting (nov 9) was at this same flower bed, though because it was november the main flower was different - the white Salvia Waverly. Looking forward to spring 2015!
