First Hummer Photo in 2011

It's already a different summer! I noticed a female hummingbird at the main nectar feeder last night and took a chance BirdCam would spot her the next day. And that happened. This bird made a half dozen visits earlier today, making herself the earliest photographed Ruby Throated ever here at Cary BirdCam. It's not impossible I saw her Saturday, as I did not get a good enough look to tell male or female. In any case, one is here, and it's certainly possible she's a summer resident rather than a pass-through. What a nice April surprise! I'm looking forward to many, many pleasurable days of hummer observations.
