I guess it might be pure coincidence, or perhaps something related to the wind and weather, but both the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and the Monarch Butterflies were sighted today. I saw 3 Monarch Butterflies (no pictures unfortunately as I was driving), and when I got home, I noticed a familiar sound I haven’t heard since last year. A Ruby Throated Hummingbird!
It’s a mature male that has arrived and starting to stake out his territory. What’s even a little more interesting, is that the Rufous Hummer is still here as well. The weather is supposed to be nice tomorrow, so perhaps I can get some nice pictures.
In the interim, here’s a couple of pictures of the mature male hanging around my pomegranate tree.
