marching parade while keeping three balls in the air and
Here in Union Springs I've had my feeder outside my kitchen window for 3
wks.. Finally saw a female hummer, just once each day, on the 20th &
27th. In the past they have /always/ come when my columbines begin

planning our two group walks for the Finger Lakes Land Trust Spring Bird

Here in Auburn I've had two pair of hummers for several weeks. My friend has
them in Skaneateles too. I see them frequently at my feeders.

and Winter Wren in the hollow, a nice string of Pied-billed Grebe songs from
the open water in the middle of the big Michigan Hollow Marsh
It might have been late for the little hummers but I've seen a couple of
the 'regulars' around here on south shore of lake ontario for two weeks or
also as for other bird notes had a weird sad discovery on boat- the

reality to my husband, and TWO males arrived at the one visible feeder and

I saw my first hummingbird yesterday at an Amish greenhouse in SummerHill; the
Amish ladies said the birds have been in the greenhouses for a couple of weeks.
