Lisa - thanks for the hummingbird update. Good point about staggered migration, which is evident in many migrations to prevent a single event from wiping out a species.

I had a hummingbird at my feeder yesterday Sept 25 and Fri. Sept 24. I still have a few Bee Balm flowers and my Cyprus vine is in full bloom. I've been looking today, Sunday the 26th, but no sign. I have read that Hummers stagger their migration. One explanation is that it prevents a weather catastrophe from wiping out huge numbers. Also as global warming trends continue expect to see Hummers staying later.


I have seen Hummingbirds this week 9/20/10 at my feeder. I'm still keeping fresh liquid in my feeders for those passing through.


You have done a great job. How long they live in yard? I wanna visit your yard and enjoy the sounds of hummingbird.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
