No influx of hummingbirds...but I suddenly had 6-8 tufted titmice, including
several immatures, outside my window this morning. It's where the feeder is
located in colder months, but the feeder is put away now, because of the
springtime influx of bears in my neighborhood (!) The titmice were busily
looking for the feeder, scolding and calling all the while.
Interesting that this species, which was uncommon 15 years ago...a
"southern" bird...is now pretty common.
Global warming? Or just the spread of feeders and suburbia? Or maybe
