    Hi Cin,

    I'll recheck my hummer guides, but I thought that you ought to have a migratory population passing through. I'm fuzzy on the details - let me get back to you.

    Well that's a relief! LOL! I always feel like the least knowledgeable person here!

    My grandmother was a bio professor, and my older sister and I often spent our childhood summers hanging out in her college labs, doing the experiments and learning way over our heads. It was quite cool!

    She had a Peterson Field Guide collection that would curl my toes. And Time Life volumes on math and science, etc, etc. I grew up sitting in her library all day long just plunging into her books. Even before I could read them. I tried to learn from the pictures and diagrams. I couldn't get enough!

    I guess I've copied her model, as it's made such an impression on me. I have a wonderful, albeit small, collection of nature guides and science books. And it's funny how often I turn to the least expected of them!

    She's the one named in the orchid we're trying to remake: Blc. Gladys Young.

    Thank you, Nana!

    Snort!

    If she is, it's because I got all of my compulsive-obsessive self from her!

    Your year round hummer would be the Caliope, one of my favorites! The male has red stripes on the throat. You probably also see Broad Tailed hummers, although not as common in your area as Caliope. Many people confuse Broad Tailed with Ruby Throated hummers. Rubies don't come as far west as you are. You may also get Black Chinned. They look a lot light Broad Tailed, but if you see the male in strong sunlight you will see he is black (dark purple) under the chin instead of red.

    Diane, can you tell from the species whether or not their local populations versus migratory?
