Female Rufous Hummingbirds are now regularly visiting the feeder. There have been at least two in the yard since Tuesday. They are most active in early evening, and provide suppertime entertainment. A lone male who arrived first isn't particularly welcoming; is surly, as is their wont.
Besides using the feeder, the RUHUs are taking nectar from a new source, which came busting out, pretty much in a single day.
Cherry blossoms. Yesterday, every half hour the trees seemed noticeably more fully in bloom. I wonder how long it will be before the House Finches start plucking them. By this time last year they had ravaged this tree.
