The first person to identify the island in the background of the photo above will be treated to a libation of his or her choice at one of the watering holes in my neighborhood. But the winner will have to come down here. Come and say hello and watch the birds.
The ones in the photo above are seagulls, landlubber!
A huge population of hummingbirds has invaded the island. They fight each other for sugar water by slapping their wings at one another.
They're usually in motion, but I've seen a couple of them perch on a limb ... never seen that before.
