Such comfortable temps now to be outside, so I thought what the heck! One final(maybe) go around. Definitely have a yard hog, tho, that limits opportunities.

they look so much nicer with the blue flowers. In these parts, we only see them on red or yellow and it tends to look like Christmas. There are occasional exceptions, but that's been my experience.

Thank you, Nancy. Have you tried black or blue salvia? Far and away my best attractor.

I use red cardinal flower, as that is what I first saw them on in the countryside around here. I used to use blue salvia, but didn't seem to have much luck, if any. It's really strange - I have one flower bed in full sun - have lots of pinks in there (or used to) including a drift of monarda, with pink crepe myrtle in the rear. Have hung a feeder out there, but it gets no action at all. They seem to prefer the one closer to the house where there is lots of shade and tall trees with branches they can rest on, however briefly.

Well, I would like a little more than a niche, but thank you, buddy.
Since I'll be here this winter, hoping for cooperative weather (which is not good people weather) for some bald eagle opportunities over on the Mississippi.

Thanks Mel. Saw a few last week in the Denver and Vail, Co. area. Probably the rear guard.:-)
