A tawny-bellied hermit (Untamed Americas - NGC)
As a kid, I saw my first hummingbird sipping sugar water from a farm feeder in upstate New York. I saw my last few here in our Perennial Garden, buzzing around the spring blooms back in 2012.
With our area’s Ruby-throated Hummingbirds returning for spring and summer, it’s just about time we got to plunking ourselves down on a garden bench and watching. —MN
