It is the end of October, temps are falling and the migrating hummingbirds are gone to the south. There are still plenty of Anna's and some Blackchins buzzing around. I have decided to more closely track the quantity of sugar used over the next year. This should give a better picture of population changes during the year.
The next two weeks will be an opportunity for our neighbors to enjoy the birds as much as we do as we head out for a trip to Italia and they take over feeder duties.
