Kelly, lucky you, still seeing hummingbirds!

I'm still seeing hummingbirds but I'll be sure to enjoy them until they are going.

Barbara - late summer hummingbirds are tough to call but it helps that the young male has some striping. Get those bins fixed for fall migration!!

Thanks for the tip about the juvenile male hummer, I saw one yesterday and wondered if it were molting or what. Now I know. And I've had quite a few new birds descending on feeders, chowing down and leaving. But my bins fell and are no longer of any use - I need to get them repaired quickly... as you said so much of interest in the backyard birding world right now!

Daniel, great observations! Lots of people are happy that the grackles are flocking for migration. Thanks for sharing what's going on in Price Edward County.

We're still witnessing daily visits to our hummingbird feeder. We believe it is a female but it could be a male juvenile.

Migration is in on; our summer Rose-breasted Grosbeaks have departed as have our House Wren's.

Bluejays and Crackles have been showing up in larger flocks and emptying our feeders in record time.

Location: Prince Edward County

ATTENTION

  • 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.

ACCEPTANCE

  • 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.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • 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.
