thanks for the comments. I love watching these little dive bombers. They have emptied 2 feeders since yesterday. With a cold front on the way , not sure how much longer they will stay here.
Since I have had so many of these things this year, I did a little research. And let me tell you, they are incredible little birds. The website, hummingbirds.net, has a migration map and is full of info on them. It says they aren't driven by temperatures at all...and how the old wives tale of "better take them down by Oct. 1" is not true. I bet I still have anywhere from 20 to 30 of them hanging around. And I mean HANGING AROUND. I put out 6 cups of syrup this morning. at least half of it will be gone when I go home from work. I have a video of one eating out of a feeder I'm holding. I almost got one to land on my finger, lol. I'm having a blast with them! I have never seen so many in one place but one other time, and that was in Colorado. Anyway...enjoy them!
