Sepia 12/30: Nectar
The hummingbirds have been in residence for a week or so, and we keep a couple of feeders filled for them. These droplets are condensation on the inside of one of those feeders.
Most of the birds we see are juveniles, I guess. They don't have the ruby throat, at least. There is one mature individual with a full ruby throat and dark face. He is a tough little bird and keeps the big feeder all to himself-- won't let another bird feed at one of the other ports if he's anywhere around. (Kind of a bully, actually.)
