I finally saw a hummer!
I've lived in CT for decades and never seen a hummingbird. I was at a friends house over the weekend. They have a huge clump of what looks like Purple coneflower in there garden. It was a hummingbird magnet. Three different birds visited. The largest was about 3", while the smallest one almost looked like a bumble bee. All these years I've been hanging red feeders all over the yard. Needless to say, I stopped by the local nursery and bought some Purple Coneflower on the way home.
