No Hummingbirds for the second day.  We took down and cleaned the feeders for next year.

  We have at least 5 here now.  I do not understand why they cannot just drink together and leave one another alone, but they always try and keep each other off of the feeder. anywho we are assisting them in their preparation.

Hummingbirds are very territorial and usually the baddest bird will control who eats from the feeder.

That's why we have a feeder on the back deck, the front porch and another hanging just outside the window where we feed the other birds!

Our Hummer situation here is really wild.  There has to be 20+ birds but counting them is impossible.  They empty the feeder every ~2 hours.

   We have not put them out this year but usually put out 3 feeders on the porch. We'd have a couple dozen feeding at a time. With that many its like a big flock of turkeys milling around and just about impossible to get an accurate count. What we find is the hens can feed any time but the roosters will not allow another rooster to feed at his feeder and he spends all his time chasing the other roosters away.

I went out early this morning and took all the feeders and a hanging basket flowering plant down.

The plant went into the recycle bin and the feeders were washed and put away for the Winter.

I figured taking them down early in the day would be easier on the hummers, since they have the rest of the day to find something else!

Haven't seen any in a few days!

Our weather changed last night and we have many less today.  I guess that they continued on another leg of their migration.

We still have them in WI.  They may be down in MS later... but still in the 70's through next week.

Yup, It is 65 this morning so we will soon see.  There were about 5-6 yesterday PM before they went to roost.  I filled the feeder just in case there are some stragglers this AM.

   I filled the feeder yesterday, and today it is about 3/4 full. They have definitely slowed down. I think there are only 2 left.

My feeder is down about from this morning's fill up.  At least those that are still here are enjoying it.

We are 65 again this morning and the feeder is full.  They only emptied one yesterday.  It looks like maybe 6-8 buzzing around.
