Pardon the quality, or rather lack of in this photo. It was through my dirty backdoor window. One of my little hummingbirds has made a habit of sitting in the shade of the back porch in the mornings and evenings. There are very few trees of size in this fairly new subdivision. I read somewhere that birds open their beaks to help cool themselves, I guess a little like dogs panting.
Stay cool if you live down here...enjoy the cool if you've got it. My prayers are with those on the East Coast for the next few days.
