Hummers are moving through Alpine. Here is a photo I took today a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.
If you're wondering why the pinkish background on some of my Alpine hummer shots, it's because I take them out the window by the feeders, and way in the background is a barn-red shed. This is the effect it makes. Rather pretty, but so unnatural looking.
My new electric pump should arrive in a couple of days. My husband was going to order a stainless steel 1½" discharge pump, but wisely,decided to let me order the one I thought I should have. I already have a 1½" pump that belonged to my late husband. That's what I was using before my son came down and got the 3" gas pump set up. So I ordered a 3" electric trash pump. It was actually less expensive than the one Hugh planned to get me. Hope I ordered the right one for my situation.
