I had thought I heard a hummer yesterday (Feb 28) but it was so cold and windy I didn't hang out long enough to confirm it. Wish I had now.
Bonnie Wunderlich from one of our banding sites near Terlingua heard one yesterday too. Today, she also got photos, plus she also had a female. I find that very interesting. Here are Bonnie's captures. She did great! The more observers, the more is learned.
I'm thinking that with the winds coming from the south yesterday* the Lucifers arrived with it. And while male hummers usually arrive before the females, I'm considering that Lucifers might migrate north together. This isn't the first year I've seen them together the first day. One year I actually saw the female first. I'll pay more attention in future years. I wonder what Kelly will have to say about that theory.
*The wind north of CMO was from the north, but south into Mexico it was from the south for the last couple of days. Serendipity for the early arriving Lucifers.
