I AM A SURVIVOR OF THE HUMMINGBIRD MIGRATION-JANUARY 2015 UPDATE
Well, here he is making his January Update: The Winter Hummer! Yes, all the other hundreds of hummers left last September and October for Mexico. This guy stayed here for the winter! He is a juvenile male, ruby-throated hummingbird. The ruby dots on his gorget are still growing in. I have named him the 'Lone Ranger'. He has become the ultimate survivor of Texas Winter! While a blizzard rages up north, Spring rolled into Rainbow Creek! Ranger has become the guard hummer of the Bird Sanctuary. He is throwing a fit over the spring migrant songbirds like the goldfinches, which he chases off! The male cardinals have begun singing all day while the girls sit on the first nest of Spring. I love waking up to these sweet songs. Enjoy Ranger!
