Garden Notes, August 4

August 4th, 2003

Birds: just saw a hummingbird again. This time I was indoors and it stayed long enough for me to grab the binoculars. It looked to me like a female ruby-throated hummingbird – no red on the throat and white at the end of the tail feathers. I think I may be seeing the same one over and over – it seems to show up about this time of day. It investigated the Cuphea, Lantana, and finally the Buddleia (butterfly bush).

Weather: cleared up this afternoon – nice to see the sun again. We got some rain overnight, but don’t know how much.

Pictures: one new picture today
