Lake Lenore Hummers/Ouray
- I still have lots of hummers and today I saw the first Calliope(Male)at
one of my feeders. This seems so early for the Calliope?? I have many
Rufous and they have been here since June 29th. Its so nice to have all
4 species. More birds are coming back to the feeders with their young.
I have a Lincoln Sparrow that has been doing alot of singing early
morning and late afternoon. Not sure if there is a mate. I sure hope
so as he has a beautiful song. Believe my House Wrens are gone as I
have not seen or heard any!! I miss them too.
For your information, Lake Lenore is at 8,000 Feet.
Today on Sunday the 13th at Box Canyon I have two more eggs and that is
getting late and both adults were not sitting. If these adults get busy
and start to incubate that would be 9 nests,so time will tell.
Enjoyed the Durango Bird group that came on Saturday to Box Canyon.
Enjoyed meeting all of you!!! Sorry I had to leave you early.
Cheers, Sue Hirshman
