The female has been coming to drink nectar more often than her mate..At least I see her more often. I am so glad that as of September 1st they haven't left yet. I like how she is reaching out her wing closest to the nectar container like an arm for leverage! They are delightful tiny birds with so much energy! Most likely they will be leaving soon this month for South America...We also are seeing the Orioles yet who are still here.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
