How far along is Migration Home...Are they still around in IL?

There hasn't been too much posting on this board lately. I wondered if anyone has any reports of still seeing Hummingbirds in their area.

I live in IL, was especially wondering if anyone is still seeing here.

I'm near Grand Rapids, Michigan and still have a couple of hummers. They usually hang around for another week yet.

They are getting fat for sure.

Hi, there are quite a few birds at my home. Some are the same birds--I can't say but what others are just stopping in on their way south.

I live about 90 miles due east of St. Louis.

Hi ..I live in Pnconning MI and my Hummers left for awhile but then in this last couple of months they came back. Three of them were very tiny, babies I think. Now I have the ruby throated but these tiny ones were different. One had a black body and a slight lighter underside..ten theres the other baby that has the black head. Are they Rubies also?

I still have 3 or 4 today and have been having that many daily but with the cooldown coming I expect them to move on out.
