My wife and i were home this morning, Veterans Day Holiday, and i was
looking at a Red-breasted Nuthatch at the feeder when i noticed a little
bird buzz by. We finally saw it well, coloration and tail pattern, about 15
minutes later and believe it is a female Rufous Hummingbird. Since we leave
for week early and get home at dark, we don't know how long the bird has
been here; it may just be passing through.
We have lots of Pineapple Sage, Mexican Sage, and salvia blooming. We've
left our hummingbird feeders up, but have not changed the water in weeks, so
we are cleaning a feeder and will have it up soon.
Birders are welcome to look for it, NO NEED TO CALL. We live at the corner
of S. Lakeshore Dr and Rolling Rd in Chapel Hill; 1816 S. Lakeshore Dr.,
about one block east of the corner of Curtis, S. Lakeshore, N. Lakeshore,
and Kensington. Park along the street, walk up the driveway, and look at
the blooming plants. We have also noted that it perches in the juniper tree
next to the blooming plants.
Hope others get to see it.
