Early Birds

Hi everyone!

Sitting here in my kitchen well before sunrise, but light enough to see my nectar feeder. I train a camera on it daily, to record activity. Over the past few years, ive come to appreciate the hummers ability to get up early, and stay up late into the evening. Ruby throated species we have here amaze me with their hardiness.

Shot below is a screen shot, from my tablet, through my camera, taken at 5:37am, this morning. 15 minutes before sunrise...close to 90 minutes before the sun has risen high enough to hit the ground here.

What's the earliest and latest you've had visitors on your feeders, flowers, or even chasing bugs. Love to hear your experience
