You have to get up pretty early to see a newly arrived migratory bird before Iris spots it at Greensboro Birds. She's keeping a running calendar of when she sees the first and last migratory species this year. (I thought I had her on the first Catbird of the year, which arrived in my garden on Friday, but naturally, Iris saw one Thursday.)
Well, I didn't get up early this morning but Teresa did, and she was rewarded with a glimpse of the first hummingbird of 2008! (We just put the feeder up yesterday.) I saw the little creature this afternoon, so I can vouch that she wasn't making it up.
(And I'm still seeing white-throated sparrows. Doesn't it seem a bit late for them to be hanging around?)
