late hummer visits
Hello everyone - I seem to have a very late visitor to my hummer feeder. Usually here in the mountains of NE Tn. my last hummer sighting is in early October. So I took my feeders in a few weeks ago. This past Wednesday a hummer hovered in front of my living room window at face level while I was looking out. I could SWEAR it was asking for the feeder to be put out again! So I cooked up some more sugar water and put it out. Today I once again saw a hummer at the feeder. I am assuming it is the same one but I am not positive.
I noticed that other people have commented in some of the posts on late migration in their areas too. I wonder if this is a widespread phenomenon this year? Occasionally we have hummers here that spend the whole winter. But I think these are not the same as the summer residents. Any thoughts about this from any of you?
