Hummingbirds Getting Ready to Migrate September 22, 2009

Boy have our hummers been busy! This past weekend, we enjoyed watching our 5 hummers get ready for their annual migration south. They were very busy eating food as fast as we could make it and fighting feverishly over the 3 feeders. I think we should put out more!

It seems early – they usually don’t do such frantic eating until October. Sometimes they stick around until the last week of October, but I fear this year they will leave earlier….

Here’s a short video clip. I hope you enjoy watching these incredible, little creatures.
