A Late Hummer

So … here I was thinking the hummers had all gone because I hadn’t had any at my feeders for the past two weeks. The nights are cool enough now and the dreariness of wet fall weather has made things rather dull and chilly.

Today I had a single visitor to the feeder – actually it didn’t go to the feeder, but was checking out the red Christmas light behind the feeder. It didn’t drink so maybe the juice is too old now.

I will make fresh just in case it comes back or in case there are more still around or passing through for fall migration.

This is the first time I have seen a hummingbird past the middle of August.

No pics today :( of this hummer. It didn’t stick around long enough for that.
