A nice male ruby-throated hummingbird finally made an
appearance at our feeders this evening in Epworth.
We also have a Cooper's Hawk sitting on eggs. We first
noticed the nest a week ago but the pair have been seen
around the house for several weeks.
We still have close to a hundred goldfinches, several purple
finches and several pine siskins. We apparently have a resident
flock of turkeys with three plus males displaying and strutting
While checking the bluebird house by opening the side viewing
door, a bat dropped to the ground. Due to the rabies epidemic
in our county I left it to see what would happen. By dark it had
flown away and several bats were flying around the windows by
the light from inside.
