Sepia 12/30: Nectar

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.)
