Hummingbirds disappeared! :(

Hi! Within the past 2 weeks I've noticed all the hummingbirds have disappeared except for 2! :( I live in San Cristobal New Mexico which is 16 miles North of Taos. Last year they were here until the 3rd week of September. Does anyone know why? I really miss them! Thank you! Marci :)

RE: Hummingbirds disappeared! :(

Have your hummers returned Marci? I live in North Louisiana and the hummers here disappeared overnight. Here yesterday, gone today. I've never seen anything like it. We have had weekly showers all summer until recently. I figure the natural plants they feed on have started to dry up. That's what makes this more perplexing. Typically , this time of year, they are drawn to the feeders and flowers in the yard.
