I was very sad when I arrived home from work Tuesday and John pointed out a death hummingbird a couple of feet from the back steps. I have no idea how it died but the fact that it was near the steps made us wonder if one of the neighborhood cats had gotten it. On Sunday a couple of cats that we had never seen before wandered through. John also saw a pair of hummers fighting last week so maybe that was how it died.
There were no hummingbirds in the garden for a couple of days but yesterday and today we saw one. I have no idea if it is a male or female but it's good to have one buzzing around again.
Maybe someday I'll get close enough to get a good picture.
