Nope, but I have a carnivorous female cardinal who keeps coming to my suet feeder.   Hangs there awkwardly and gets a chunk then comes and sits on the deck rail.

Still at least one hummingbird here yet as of a few minutes ago. Was almost positive they'd be a no show today.  :scratch:

Still one hummer here as of 20 minutes ago. Didn't see any when I was looking at the feeder while seated in the oval office earlier. Just happened to look at the flower bed and noticed one working the 4 o'clocks over. It went to the cannas then circled around, coming after the petunias on the patio and ended up on the potted blue salvia.

Saw one last hummingbird about 2:15. Was on the petunias then went to the nectar feeder. It's too early for a G&T Reb altho it is warm enuff. Just hit 81 in Waseca a few minutes ago.  :scratch:

Saw a hummer earlier today here.   Hard to believe the temp will go from 73 right now to 36 overnight, although looking at the clouds whipping by makes it seem more possible.

I bet! You probably got home at 3:30, got a hummer and woke up at 5:30!  :rotflmao:

It's 61 here now and was 81 yet at 6 p.m.
