Going, Going, Almost Gone — Sunday, September 5, 2021

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.

  1. 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!


  2. 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;(
