Hummingbird anniversary

Today is the 6-month anniversary of the arrival of our wintering female Rufous Hummingbird. She was busy today, as usual, but not quite so busy as on very cold days when she is often visible at the feeders. For the last eight years my wintering female Rufous Hummingbird (presumably not the same bird for all nine years) has generally departed between mid-March and mid-April. She clearly spends a lot less time on her breeding ground than on her wintering grounds.
