My little flock of Hummingbirds is starting to dwindle
Gradually the feeding at my feeders is becoming less and less
I have gone from 12 feeders
Down to two.
And the reality is, I really only need one. But I keep up two so they don’t have to fight for a spot.
Soon the Swallows will follow. When that happens the Summer birds are all gone.
Your friend on a western Colorado farm,
Beautiful photos! Yes, I think they are leaving a couple weeks early. I have only had one feeder up for several weeks. Still lots of flowers, yet I think there were only four hummers buzzing about today. The pygmy nuthatches are back, as are the junkos. It does seem fall is in thes air ~ Keep those photos coming!
The loggers are saying the Forrest are showing signs of a very early and hard winter coming.
Still getting a few here too, but it won’t be long, I guess
It’s always a bitter/sweet time.
Sad here, the swallows have all gone in east central Wisconsin.
Oh.. that is so sad. I dread it when happens here.
I still have some at my feeder…cannot tell if they are just travelling through or if they have been here all summer. I have to make one last batch of food for them as they seem real hungry just before they all leave;(
The ones I have only want to eat…so I think they are flying through.
Charlee: “We don’t have anything to do with the dwindling number of birds, we swear.”

Feeding the babies. They do have to fly south for warmth, bless their little birdie hearts. Love those little guys.
Me too. They brighten our lives.
