Deb and I have enjoyed the hummingbird show the past 10 days. This year there seems to be a bumper crop of young birds in the area. We rarely see multiple Ruby-throated Hummingbirds feeding together on the feeders. I counted 20+ hummingbirds on the feeders yesterday, one which had three adult males and juvenile male all feeding together, another with four juveniles, then four more with three hummers each! They are literally emptying an entire feeder in a couple of hours. This is the most active we have ever seen the yard. Along with our humminbird activity, we have had a female Hooded Warbler for the past week, eating meal worms. Yesterday, the first Tennessee Warbler showed up (but it did not find the grapes or watermellon yet). Other sporadic visitors included a female Summer Tanager and a Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher. Got to love fall migration!
