Ruby-throated Hummingbird in East End

 On a dark and dingy spring day, it just happened I was in the right place at the right time.
Margie Mcmillan's colorful spring garden lured in an unexpected guest - a female Ruby-throated Hummingbird!
Her garden has hosted several special guests over the years, including Common Redpoll, a possible Hoary Redpoll, a Yellow-throated Warbler and now .... Well, the pictures tell the story.
 With this unseasonably cold spring, will the hummingbird come back seeking an easy meal? Only time will tell.
 Maybe there will be an influx of hummingbirds all over the city! Who knows? After today's high winds, I will put out my feeder and hope for a miracle, too.
