I am the pleased hostess of a tiny, male, Ruby-throated hummingbird! He just drank from my lone, el cheapo plastic feeder, two different times, and perched atop its shepherd's hook once. I have been slowly hardening my new flowering plants and have yet to place them upon the sunny rail. Three visits... thirsty critter. He just chased off a Carolina chickadee having perched atop the hook, lol. It is having a fit over his presence, for unknown reasons, fussing up a storm. Being cloudy, I'm going to set some of the new flowers up there for him.
