1 Hummingbirds on Mon Oct 26, 2009 12:46 pm

Well the time has come to take down our hummingbird feeders for the winter months. I always hold out hope for a rare one to show up in the late fall. We only have the Ruby-throat native to east of the Mississippi River but sometimes the fall weather can cause erratic movements in both western and Caribbean species.
It is a myth that they will stay too long if you keep your feeder out too late in the fall. The Hummers know when it's time to leave and having sugar water feeders out does not prevent them from migrating south. It does no harm what so ever to leave a feeder out late into the fall. The only problem is the sugar water freezing if the weather gets too cold.

We had them buzzing and fighting over the feeders. They spent more time squabbling over turf than they did eating.

They visit my plants here but the cats are always trying to catch them,grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but they never do but it scares them away so you can never really enjoy them. Once we were sitting on the porch and hubby was wearing a bright maroon colored shirt and one flew and just stayed right in front of his face trying to figure out what kind of flower he was :scratch:
