I have a few left, feeding from my petunias. I'm going to miss them.

I think we saw more hummers than usual this year. Fewer Rufus. There are a few still hanging around. Woodside, 8660'

I had put on my list for today to take down my feeders, went out to light the grill and low and behold there was one out there, I guess I leave it up for another week or so. 8,800' in Friendship Ranch.

Yep, thought mine were all gone and left one out just in case but I think the bees ate it all and behold, there was one flying around. Need to make some new juice and keep it out for awhile yet.

Same here. Thought they were gone, but have left the feeders out just in case. Sure enough, there was one feeding this morning when I opened up the kitchen curtains.

Still have one hanging around here, unless it is just passing thru.

We have two. Maybe all the flowers still on my deck are attracting the migrating hummers.
I have an orchid cactus blooming late and the hummers love that plant.

The Hummers left my area about 2 weeks ago. The Robins are gone now too :(

We started the year with only a few, but after the hatch we had a large flock. Males left a month ago, then females. An occasional young one still drops by.
