Been noticing lots of hummingbirds lately. I'm sure they are heading south. This little guy gave me a chance to get a few pics.

Ours at the ranch have moved on. Had probably 50-60 last week, now nothing. Wifes house in Richardson still has a few. Weird.

We still have ours here in Alabama. Last year it took a big cold front before the last straggler moved on.

I have out four feeders right now and had probably 50-60 at one time at all 4 and no telling how many moving in and out into the Live Oaks. I had them sitting side by side on the feeders with 2 of them sharing one feeder hole at a time. One feeder had 16 sitting on it at one time. Two with only 4 feed holes had 8 on each feeder. There were that many buzzing around fighting for a space.

All cool photos. I only have 3 or 4 hanging around.

Here are some pics from yesterday morning after the sun came up. Bad angle and to large of a lens to get all the numbers that were at the 4 feeders. The highest numbers were about 10-15 minutes after daylight. I took some cell phone video of them but can not post it on here.

This morning I was down to maybe 20 here at one time and this evening maybe 15 or so. They are moving south.

Thanks for the pics. Always enjoy seeing hummingbirds; recently started seeing them here in NW San Antonio.

I haven' seen any at my feeders for a week or longer. Guess they have all moved south.
