Leaving on our annual fall car cruise to Dubuque on Friday a.m. I fear when I get back Sunday the hummingbirds may be gone.  :sad:

Still several hummingbirds here this a.m. Will probably mix up one more small batch of sugar water to tide them over whilst I'm gone.

Saw at least one hummingbird this morning. Saw one on the nectar feeder outside while I was seated in the oval office. Saw it or another one on the cannas when I came in from chores.

Just had a magpie land on the deck railing and then into the sunflower seed feeder.  Didn't stay long.

I enjoyed seeing them when I lived in the Little House on the Prairie. They seemed to like the piles of goose guts I dumped out in the weeds.

Update: I saw a hummingbird tonite. It was working over the blue salvia along with the red & white impatiens. Noticed it just as I was finishing up picking the last of the pears.  :happy1:

Haven't seen any hummingbirds since Wednesday. Unless they make an encore appearance during this warmer stretch of weather, guessing they're done here for the year.  :coffee:

Saw a hummingbird this a.m. while seated in the oval office. Yet more evidence of global climate change... :rolleyes:

Saw one hummingbird again this a.m. from my seat in the oval office. Also looked like a ruby crowned kinglet drinking water out of the ant moat on the nectar feeder. All kinds of warblers moving thru right now. Still enough leaves combined with the birds constantly being on the move that it makes them difficult to ID.

      I saw two hummingbirds on our feeders yesterday. Not certain they were ruby throated, though. More grayish.
If I had known I would live to be this old, I would've drunk better whiskey.

Was surprised this a.m. to see a hummingbird yet outside the oval office. Beginning to think they're perverts.  :scratch:

Careful, Dotch. Hummers in the Oval Office can get a guy impeached.

Bluebirds have been congregating at the kindly neighbors pasture. Cool to see a half dozen of them sitting on the fence when I go over there.  :cool: No hummer this a.m. though.  :sad:
