First Hummer

Let the record reflect the first Heineman-Fleck hummingbird sighting of the season: 10:43 a.m., April 16, 2005.

Lissa and I were sitting on the front porch snacking. The little guy zoomed up to the hummingbird feeder hanger. No feeder yet, but he was makin’ the rounds. Think about it. This guy has been to Central America for the winter, all the way back, no Mapquest, no Google Maps, and a very small brain as well. But there he is.

Lissa immediately went in and filled the feeder, then began calling friends and family to report.
