I love to watch the hummers, their antics are amusing. There seem to be so many visiting the feeders this year, I guess because of the drought so many of the plants they use did not make.

Thanks for the comments. Hope you enjoyed the photos.

About the middle of September is the peak time for the migration here. About the same for y'all I would think. Most of my Hummers took off Wednesday. I still have a few stragglers dropping in. Well, anyway it was fun and there's always next year. :) I'll keep a feeder or two going until November for any birds needing a stopping place.

Nice pics Ironwood. We took a feeder with us to Colorado. Usually when we are out West this time of year we see loads of hummers. Not so this trip. Did not see the first hummingbird. This is my first hunting trip to Colorado though. Guess we were too high and too late. There was no way out of that valley at less than 10,000 feet. I guess they leave early out there.

Thank you Terry. Hope you get the phone working. I'm thinking it might take an MIT grad to work one of the things.:)

Bullie, The Rufus hummingbird is one that migrates through Colorado. I think they would all be gone from Colorado by the end of August. How did the hunting trip go? I'll have to see if I can find a post about it.

Some of the hummingbirds get to looking like a butterball before they move on.
