    So sad, Tony.

    Off topic a bit, but in Virginia they are proposing to cut down 6500 acres of woodland to install solar panels. Details at

    More hummingbirds will lose their homes.

      Many years ago I would ask these so-called environmentalists that wanted massive amounts of solar power what land did they want paved with solar panels? The forests? The deserts? The grasslands? I would ask them which ecosystems they were willing to sacrifice and there was never an answer. Some would fumble about avoiding answering. I asked because I knew their real agenda was simply to make energy scarce.

      These solar plants are very destructive to the environment but they provide crony jobs, rob the productive taxpayers, and make energy more expensive and scarce so the political class loves them.

      Also these solar panels will be a huge urban heat island. Wonder if they think of that – probably not. The developers will only be interested in subsidies and other sources of money.

      Hummingbirds are very habit forming critters. Each year one returned to my house and it would sit on exactly the same branch each year, eyeing the bird feeder. It even returned to the exact same position on the branch.

        I go through over two gallons of nectar per day in August. Hummingbirds are like salmon, they return to their place of birth, and as long as the food supply is good, they can have up to three sets of young per season. I estimate that I am feeding 350-500 birds now, and I haven’t seen a mosquito on my property in years.

    If they haven’t already, someone soon will write a “peer reviewed” scientific paper on how climate change is causing a decline in the populations of hummingbirds. Count on it!

      Given all the past “peer reviewed” papers it’s a sucker’s bet to go against your prediction. Maybe one of the progressive trolls will take it up.
