Ours has been gone for over two weeks now . It is the earliest I have seen that they up and left.
I still have my feeder out to catch some passers by and it will come down today .
Haven't seen any for about a week, week and a half. Will probably leave the feeder up for a couple of more days for stragglers.
Heard my first one make a vocal sound Thursday. I opened the front door and heard hummmmm, it came up and stopped about 1 1/2 ft from my face. Hovered for a few seconds, I said, hey little feller. It said, chirp. Then went on it`s way. Pretty cool.
I still saw one yesterday at our feeder.
I'll probably leave it up another week or so
Counted at least 4 this morning. They've been trickling out for a couple weeks now.
We still had 2 today. Fighting like crazy every time I looked out the window!
Refilled yesterday as I saw a couple still around Friday. Mostly honey bees took over the feeders so they will come down tomorrow.
My two female hummers remain, feeding from the remaining lillies, hummingbird vine, hollyhocks and feeder. They will occasionally feed from the shamrocks. One is very short and fat, while the other is tall and slender. They have become rather tame. My juvenile bluebirds remain, as well.
Our last pulled out early last week.
We might have a couple still hangin around. This year was a bumper crop! At peak we probably had 30 or 40 of them. Looking out there was like a swarm of mosquitos!
Pretty sure our last 2 took off Sunday night. Haven't seen or heard them since....
Way cool, just experienced my first migratory, and it was much prettier than mine. I do not know its species. Light is quickly fading via overcast skies, but it appeared to be solid black or perhaps dark chocolate. It was extremely small, noticeably more so than my short, fat one. It was extremely quick and nimble. Interestingly enough, it never once hit the glass red feeder. Instead, it repeatedly flew all about my shamrock plants currently in full bloom, pollinating them with a quickness. I had relocated them only two feet from the feeder just hours before, causing them to be loaded, being that they were not visited when previously placing them closer to the doorway for potential frost protection last week. Meanwhile, I saw my tall slender hummer only once today. She behaved as in the previous day, resting upon the feeder, without even a perch, while heavily drinking from it in preparation of her upcoming long journey. I have not seen my other one, but she has been like that for awhile, always run off of late.
Doesn't mention hummers, but it would appear that two species like them.
