Every day this month (August as well) I've seen three, sometimes four, juvenile ruby-throated 
hummers on the Cardinal Flowers, the Coral Salvia, the black and blue salvia and anything 
else they can get their tongues into. There is a pecking order - alpha (probably a male 
because a few bearded streaks on its throat) attacking the others. They play, fly together, and have 
a wonderful time. Even love entering the garden when the sprinkler is on. 
Adults have been gone for several weeks. Hope these young birds fill up and have successful flights.
