I've long told everyone that the Rufous Hummingbirds arrive with the first
open Salmonberry - Rubus spectabilis blossoms:
As you may remember one Tweeter insisted that the Rufous Hummer came out of
the first Salmonberry blossoms. While I saw my first Red-flowering
Currant - Ribes sanguineum blossoms open yesterday, I haven't noted any
Salmonberry blossoms open yet. Has anyone else seen the blossoms that
herald or produce the first Rufous Hummers?
