Believe it or not, as we speak, there is a Rufous Hummingbird in Baldwinsville just North of Syracuse and it has been there since October. I saw it earlier this month (January 2021). Some homeowners are keeping feeders up for it. Apparently, they are a relatively hardy hummingbird and summer in Alaska, arriving in the spring when it is still cold. It was uncanny to see it in the winter here.

The hummers buzz me often when I am out at the road and hard hat on. Plus the fact I hang pretty ribbons. :D Must be a few wild flowers around for nectar, but often unseen. I'm just looking at fir and spruce trees all day. :D

Magicman the hummer whisperer. ;)

Swamp Donkey, in some areas Ruby-throated Hummingbbirds will follow Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers around and pirate the sapsuckers' sap wells. Probably because heavily wooded areas don;t have so many flowers. I once watched a hummer feeding at sapsucker holes in an elm tree. I don't recall seeing elms with sapsucker holes, which are in horizontal rows.

@KEC Yes, I've read that before. I've never seen it. But we do have a lot of sapsucker buzzards around here. ;D

Had a red pine and a larch that were both being hammered by sap suckers in the yard. I've got other such trees and they never touch them like that. They do pick on basswood though.
Move'n on.

I scratch my head sometimes, wondering why sapsuckers drill heck out of one tree and not others. A few years back they really worked over a mountain ash in my yard, then after that year they leave it alone. If you hoot like a Barred Owl near a sapsuckers' nest or babies the sapsucker will come in and say unspeakable things at you. And, sometimes they will have a hummingbird in tow as though towing it around with an invisible string about 4' long. Must see to appreciate.
