First Visit

I saw a ruby throated hummingbird at the feeder for the first time on April 29th.

I'm always happy when the hummingbirds return. This one did not hover in flight, but just perched on the edge of the feeder, occasionally dipping in to feed, then resting some more, sitting still, for a good minute or more.

Tired after its long journey, I'm sure.

And I saw my first tick today.

It was crawling up the bathroom wall. Obviously it came in with me, but I checked all over before my shower and found no ticks on me, just the one on the wall.

They're back -- the happily anticipated visitors and the unwelcome ones.
