Hummingbird contact - I was sitting in the adirondack chair under under the patio overhang when I heard chattering in the flower garden about 8 feet away. A female hummer was hovering low and a male started looping up and down so I watched. They both darted under the patio and one grazed me in the back of the neck. I like to get close to birds but . . .
6 LBBs - 2 Large Brown Bats and 4 Little Brown Bats, circling our yard. This is the largest increase in about 5 years so perhaps a comeback since white-nosed syndrome. Just in time for the large mosquito outbreak we are experiencing here in Hadlyme.
