The lighting is not the best in this picture as it was fairly late in the evening. We had put the feeder out about a week before. We kept on checking until suddenly he was there on the feeder. This hummingbird (along with a 2nd one we saw the next day) are probably on their way further north.

Cedar Waxwings, strip your bushes of berries, drink your birdbaths dry
We typically see large flocks of Cedar Waxwings this time of year. They work as a group, when they don’t accidentally land on each other. Also visible in this picture is an American Robin.
