Filmed march 8.
Yesterday I also saw a female hummingbird poking at Thumbelina's old nest remnants - she appeared to be taking fragments of the old nest, presumably to incorporate into a new nest somewhere. I will hunt for it.
The last I heard of the 2 Aquebogue rufouses was on feb 22, when they were doing very well - in part thanks to the live fruit-flies the homeowner is releasing in her yard, to provide protein snacks. And ruby-throats are already on the gulf coast (see http://hummingbirds.net/map.html). They will be back on Long Island in less than 2 months - you should get your feeders out by tax day.
Sorry I've not been posting recently - we have been happily busy with a succession of visitors. But I will now try to post more regularly.
