I observed the bird this morning between 9:00 and 9:45 am. It was coming to
the feeder about every 15-20 minutes, remaining for a short time (15-30
seconds) and moving off. It sometimes lights in the adjacent cedar tree
after feeding. I watched from beside the picnic table and had excellent
scope views. The neighbourhood Carolina Wren obliged with some great views
at the main feeder and a Raven passed overhead as I arrived.

or 6 persons at a time are welcome to watch the hummingbird feeder on the
south side of the house from a distance of 20 ft. A good vantage point is
the row of rocks at about that distance south of the feeder.
