When will you take your feeders down?
I usually take my feeders down in October,but our local newspaper had a front page nice picture of Ruby-throated hummingbirds buzzing around a feeder,and information about a local group tagging hummingbirds. Mr. Patton, from Louisiana, is licensed by the Departmenht of the Interior, to band hummingbirds. He reported that Rufous and 10 other species arrive in Louisiana in November. So, yea, I plan on keeping my hummers fresh with nectar thru November. I would love to see another species. I have only observed Ruby Throats. It would such a thrill to have visitors thru November!
