Here too, I think. Haven't seen any in a few days. I'll leave the feeder up for a few more days. Just came in from covering the potted flowers - snow is heading our way tonight.

I had not seen any for two days. Then today there has been one female and she is really loading up all day. Guess she is getting ready for the trip

Just when I thought they were gone...
Even with nighttime lows below freezing and 7" of snow yesterday (glad I covered the flowers) I saw a female at my feeder this afternoon. After she hit the feeder for a nice long drink, she knew somehow that the flowers were under the tarp and she spent several minutes at the flowers too. Sweet girl, it's time to head south!

I took my feeders down yesterday; no hummers for well over a week. On the bright side, we have lots of butterflies sipping at our zinnias, marigolds and chrysanthemums.

At long last I finally got around to putting the CollideEscape on my window. I would highly recommend doing it for any windows you have a bird-collision problem with, with the caveat that you probably wouldn't want to put it in a front window, or any other highly visible window.

Here's what it looks like from the inside. On the big, center window. The two smaller ones on the sides have screens. It's basically like having a heavy screen over your window.



And here's what it looks like from the outside, I guess like having a blind down over the whole window, or something like that. No way a bird is going to confuse this as something OK to fly into!



Though I just put it up literally minutes ago, I suspect it'll also help my problem of scaring away the birds at my bird feeders whenever I walk in front of my kitchen window. If I want to actually watch those birdies at the feeders I have to be really careful and stay a certain distance away from the window, or I'll scare them away. Now it's looking like I might be able to go right up to the window and they won't even see I'm there. I hope.

Back to the main topic, I took down my hummingbird feeder a few days ago. Hadn't seen one in a while.
