Just knew last batch of nectar was the last this season

aliiSeptember 17, 2007

I make 3 qts at a time needless to say most of it gets tossed

when changing/cleaning the feeders. I looked out just before

taking my grandson to the bus at 7:20AM and sure enough there

was my bossy hummer fluttering around the saucer feeder! It

seems so cold, I think its 50 degrees. And just to think the last 2 nights was 38 degrees and they (2) are still here!!

My friend said there was frost those 2 cold nights. Now its headed toward 80 degrees for this week.. so maby they will be here a while yet :) Commin'up another pitcher of nectar :) :)
