I have a few more than that. I read that usually they're gone by Oct 15th. I will keep a few feeders up for stragglers, or until it starts to freeze. They are probably on their way south. My friends had 50-60 of them one day and next 75% were gone. I had an increase in them a couple weeks ago too.

I don't know when my wife puts feeders out but we have tons of hummingbirds in our yard when she does - they actually fight over the feeders. I'll have to ask her when the best time is to put them out.

I posted this I think when I had just moved here; we have had plenty of hummers the last couple of years! They seem to be gone now.

Just checking what's on tonight (10/12) and noticed this:


Nature

Super Hummingbirds8:00 PM on PBS, 1 hr 2016 TV-PG

An examination of hummingbirds, which possess the ability to fly backwards, upside-down and even "tread" air. Included: How they drink a flower's nectar; why they thrive at high altitudes; and how they mate, lay eggs, fight and raise families.
Find more about Nature


Hopefully, they will repeat this on a later date for those who are seeing this too late. I will be glued to the tv for the next hour!!!!

Thanks for finding that. It was absolutely wonderful. I hope you, and others, get to see it. If you like hummingbirds, it's a MUST SEE! They filmed things never seen before with hummingbirds!


Saw one hummer this morning at the feeder. I've named him Mr T. as it seems to have a little Mohawk on top. Most have now gone south for the winter.
