The migrant season is in full swing here, with warblers, thrushes and more. 
There are still at least a pair of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, and by way of 
contrast, turkeys. Usually there are a flock of seven smaler males, a solitary 
huge male and a single female all showing up at different times. Today six 
females appeared while the big male was around. He responded by displaying, but 
really made a fool of himself! He is moulting, and looking quite patchy, and 
his tail is very snaggle-toothed with quite a few really short tail feathers. 
The effect is quite demeaning, and he is suitably ignored by the girls. Ralph
