One of three (?) Hummingbirds now wintering in the yard. I've been suspecting that there were more than two hummers wintering here, based on the little aerial battles occurring.

I'm going to post all three of the individuals on this date, in hopes that the three can be distinguished from one another by their gorget patterns.

In his Jan 27, 2019 posting, @greglasley described the 1000's of American Robins pouring into an evening roost site at this location. The Robins were not at this location a year later, in Jan 2020. However, in early December of 2020, the same began happening again. Thousands of Robins are once again pouring into this same evening roost location. It is quite an awe-inspiring sight to watch.

This year, the Ashe Juniper trees are quite laden with berries. The Robins fan out in the morning and begin feeding on all of the nearby trees.

the seventh digit appears to be either a 3 or an 8?
