They're leaving

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
This was the scene yesterday morning; the feeders were just buzzing with hummingbirds loading up with nectar. But then, about noon, they started blasting off at full speed, not to return. They're starting their journey toward the gulf for winter range. I'll leave the feeders up and full until it looks like they might freeze, so that the little guys from way up north will have a rest stop on their way south.

This morning, there are two females still here, but they are eating constantly, no doubt getting ready for a long flight.

I'm going to miss my little buddies, and I know the cats will as well

Awww! I hope they make it safely to their new destination and then find their way back again after winter. Your kitties are going to miss their live TV

Sigh, summer is coming to an end...

But the year round songbirds should keep the Jellicles happy until next spring!

What a wonderful photo! I almost took my feeder down over the weekend, but noticed on Saturday morning one visitor who managed to feed before the wasps scared him off - I wish that I could get rid of them. But, the feeder will probably not be refilled, since I think that most of the birds have left New Hampshire to head south!

yup, the sad part of the year for us hummingbird people

Most of mine have left as well. There are only 5 or so left- its like a ghost-town without them I miss their little wars already.
My feeders will stay up through Oct. Don't want any babies or injured birds who had a late start to go hungry
I'm already planning my garden for next spring thinking up all the new flowers I can buy to lure them in .........................

Awesome pic btw!!!!!!!!

That's nice of you to keep the feeder up for any late birds.
