So the birds had to live through an earthquake, and then last weekend they had to survive a hurricane. I know that the birds are still molting, but they kind of look like they had their feathers wind-blown.

When the winds finally died down and I was able to sit outside again, I finally saw my first hummingbird of the year. It was buzzing my patio table trying to "drink" my red umbrella. I made up some hummingbird food right quick and he/she came right back in shortly after that. I did notice that there are at least 2 as well. Interesting that it took all summer until I finally had at least 1 in my backyard.
