How Long Will They Stay

For the last 3 days I have still had 3 hummers around the yard. They are getting what is left of the bee balm and of course I keep the feeder full for them. I live in Northern Ontario and was wondering if anyone knows how much longer these little guys would be hanging around. I just love watching them, I can stand about a foot from the feeder and they don't even mind. Sometimes they just hover in front of me for a few seconds....I like to believe they are saying hello and thanks for the food. LOL

Its really hard to say for sure could be gone any day now just depends on the area. I have been to your province a long time ago. I fished in or on "little go home bay"

RE: How Long Will They Stay

I live in CA and our Anna's will stay through winter if happy. I have been busy planting winter blooming salvias, etc, to keep them here. I don't have a feeder... I'm really "mean" like that. :P I just put this new [for me] plant out, and they found it immediately and went crazy:
