|Thanks for posting the link, Ann. My article was focused on the Ruby-throats so this is good info to have. I do stress leaving up feeders until you no longer see birds.
I saw a man, an old Cilician, who occupied an acre or two of land that no one wanted, a patch not worth the ploughing, unrewarding for flocks, unfit for vineyards; he however by planting here and there among the scrub cabbages and white lilies and verbena and flimsy poppies, fancied himself a king In wealth, and coming home late in the evening loaded his board with unbought delicacies. ~~Virgil, The Georgics (29 BC)
