Just spied a rufous hummer at our feeder today. The resident Anna's are not pleased. We have been observing hummers wars this afternoon.

Let the hummer wars begin! Still early for all the upper midwesterners and northerners.

I spied a rufous hummer at our feeder this past weekend in the South Sound area. The local Anna's were NOT pleased.

Annas hummingbirds are bigger than the Rufous. They all seem to be assertive at feeders. How could you tell the anna hummers were not pleased?

They're into southern Wisconsin already! And with nice weather coming it's time to get ready.

I put my feeders out over the weekend. But I haven't seen any yet. According to the map, they should be here... they are in WI already.

So far it looks like just the early scouts are into the upper Midwest. The next couple of weeks should be quite exciting.

I only made up one cup of sugar water and split it between the two feeders. I'll wait until they show up, before I start making it by the gallon.

My hubs has been known to put a dash of hummingbird juice in his tea. (Hummingbird juice is what I write on the gallon jug in the fridge.)
