Alison - please do me a favor and post on my behalf on HMBIRD a response to Scott Varney's 6/8/20 post that his camera is not likely detecting nocturnal hummingbirds.  They go into overnight torpor, thus are not airborne.  His recorded subjects are most likely sphinx moths which are nocturnally active.  Hummers don't fly at night.

Thanks,

Bob
