These little birds are highly entertaining. When the feeder is empty in front they will come to the screen and hover there to get our attention. Then when we go out they will hover around us until we get the feeder and take it in for refilling.
We must have 50 or more hummingbirds hanging around for the sugar water. We will taper off the amount we put out the end of August and take them in Labor Day so they will migrate and not wait to long and put themselves in danger. Presently they are going through a gallon of sugar water a day and it is a chore to keep those feeders full.
Carol is about ready to embark on her family visits so I know I am going to be kept busy in her absence.
