THE GANG IS HERE! HUMMINGBIRD MIGRATION CONTINUES ON SEPTEMBER 6



Hi Everybody!!
Hail! Hail! The Gang's all here.........yes, more birds arrived overnight. Today's photos of September 6, will reflect crowds at all feeders. It is difficult to get an exact count of the tiny visitors. They are easier to count in the photos when they are still! At this point, there are 30 feeders around the grounds. Ten birds hovering around each feeder would be around 300 birds. I notice the increase more by how many times a day the feeders need to be refilled. Of course, with more birds came more bees. The new bees have longer tongues to reach the nectar in the feeders and they can suck it up! I have turkey platters of sugar water on the ground for the bees also. Low humidity plus lots of sunshine equals great day for taking photos of many birds. Enjoy!  

Good Morning!
