    That's fantastic info, Hummer. I had no idea those little guys/gals lived that long. And 9 gals of sugar water?!? Wow...I'm impressed when we go thru 4 cups in a day between our 2 feeders.

    That's quite a six-pack on that scorpion.

    We use mist nets, cage wire traps and cloth bonnet traps with flowers or feeders inside. Federal and state licenses of course.

    The 50% that survive the first year might live on average 4-8 years for females, a year or so less for males. Amazing that a 3.5 gram bird will live to migrate to Mexico and back for several years.

    If you feed them they will come. It's as simple as that. Our feeders and flowers bring in a lot of birds. Figure about 550 birds per gallon per day, maybe 2-4 times that number of birds during migration. Lots of variables. I'm running 19 feeders here now, and eight feeders at our farm outside Palisade.

    Here is that House Wren. Terrible picture, but I couldn't get any closer. This shot shows her coloring.

    Nice, it is recognizable. Good to have around as they mostly eat insects. There are some on our mountain property now.

    We have a little flycatcher that builds a nest under the deck above our lower patio. This year she hatched 3 little ones. We always worry because so far, every year, at least one or two fall out of the nest and die. This year all 3 made it. I was hanging a sheet over the deck railing a few days ago and saw two of the babies fly off into the trees. Went downstairs and found the 3rd sitting on the patio. When I opened the door it flew away, too. Mama is still hanging around but haven't seen the babies.

    We get those house wrens, too.

    I don't see them around the house but there are a lot of killdeer in the area. I think I've posted some pics of them before. One left it's eggs right in the rock driveway at work. They do the strangest things.

    He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust. ~ Thomas Aquinas
