CarolinaBirders . . .
In case you haven't noticed, Gary Phillips has gone ballistic over
winter hummingbirds. Susan Campbell and I have tried to be a calming

put together we can match him for exuberance.
It's apparent he has been drinking far too much fermented sugar water
from poorly maintained hummingbird feeders.
P.S. Nice work, Gary!
