This female Ruby-throated Hummingbird came and perched in front of my window as I was having my morning coffee. It stayed, and stayed and stayed. Also while there a male hummingbirdwith its red throat came to feed from one of the feeders there. and a beautiful gentle looking Gray Catbird stopped by for a visit. I didn't get a picture of the gray Catbird but it will probably be back. We have a large amount of wild Rose bushes that Catbirds favour and one year a pair nested there. We could hear their" meows" all that summer in our garden as the catbirds perched on our fence daily I hope each year that we will have a nesting pair again. And speaking of nesting pairs we have a pair of Cliff swallows directly across the street from our placeThis picture below of them both in the nest side by side
was taken yesterday morning. Today my goal is to get a picture of a Spotted Sandpiper which I saw by the river on Friday. I haven't seen them there since, maybe this mornning.. Now I'm off to find the Sandpipers and who knows what else?
