On the bird front, the resident hummingbirds are back almost a week early. We sighted them on May 4. There is already a contest over the nectar silo between our usual bird and some interloper. We have rose breasted grosbeaks out the wazoo
On the fish front, we added some orange shiners to the pond. They're small and not likely to attract the heron too much. I reckon he's after frogs at this point anyway since he ate all the fish of any consequence already. They don't school as much as the comets and are active even when it is colder.
