We will be open tomorrow am and pm (but closed from 12.30 to 3, as always). See lihummer.org for directions etc. Today was quite a good day, with quite a few hummers around, and they should stay until the wind shift to the north. One of our visitors today was 99 years old, and another only 2. 2 of our other, regular, visitors today were spotted fauns, who have doubled in size over the last month. Luckily they don't like the strong flavor of our salvias, our key hummingbird plants.
The afternoon tomorrow may have showers and thunder, but that should not deter hummers, and you can take shelter in the front cabin or under the front porch. If possible car pool because parking is limited, and if there are a lot of visitors, please do not stay too long.
The picture was taken yesterday by Cliff Dayton. It shows a young male feeding at red porterweed. Note the transparency of the wing.
