Today, mid-afternoon, a female Rufous Hummingbird was feeding right by the window. This is the latest FOS (first-of-season, or FOY for those who prefer the acronym for first-or-year) in recent memory for us. We have our first blooming Salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis) also along the entry drive today, also distinctly late. We encounter our first Rufous in a March 3-17 window as a rule, but this March has been chilly at night, with lower-than average daily temperatures as well.
