Well, the hummingbirds are here. I understand that they follow the flowering currant up the coast. And ours started blooming a couple of days before I heard the first hummingbird zoom by. They are such feisty little things. They fight and squabble and divebomb each other. I was sitting on the back porch tearing up strips for rag rugs and ducking every once in a while as one of them would dive just over my head. Theser are rufous hummingbirds.
