Been awhile since I seen one but my feeder with home maid nector is almost gone so they must be around mid day?,I'm told some hummer's hang around until freezeup.

Side note,monachs have showed big time lately,had a couple dozen hangin on my tree's lately.

Just checked back in my columns and noted the hummers were last seen at our feeders Sept. 29th last year & the 30th the year before. In town sometimes the gal at the grocery store I compare bird watching notes with will see them a few days longer than we do. She told me recently about putting more jelly out for the orioles. Her 3 years old granddaughter was convinced there was a dimple out of what was still in the dish. Never argue with 3 year-olds when it comes to filling bird feeders she said.  :laugh:

Saw no hummingbirds this a.m. at the feeders.  :sad: Doesn't necessarily mean they're not around as snow said previously. Have seen them show up after a day or so missing them in the morning. Still plenty of clean nectar in the feeders and flowers for them to feed on.  :happy1:

Roger the chasing.    I see all those pictures of feeders with multiple hummers on them.     I never have more than one, and that one will hang around to chase off any others...  And it is like that all summer.

Oops.  I see some on my feeder is frozen.  Today is the day for them to come down.  I may take the screens off the windows today too.  Then we can see outside better during the winter months.
