Phinny and I are sitting out on the back patio enjoying a beautiful morning and watching the hummingbirds buzz around. It's around 10:00 AM and the morning marine layer clouds are just breaking up. The afternoon temperature should get just to 80 today, just about perfect. About time to go back inside and I see an oriole, this time a close enough look to see that it is a female - can't tell juvenile or youngster. We shall see how much longer she hangs around.
Hummers perching in skeleton of ceanothus (Ramona Lilac, the plant was doing great - then croak!) Now it is the perfect perch, just looks a little nasty.
Hummers and bees (errrgg) at feeders
