I still was able to enjoy my ruby-throated, "little princess" hummer, today. The adult male and (2) juvenile males left Aug. 26th, and the adult female left 2 days later.
I still have a juvenile male, ruby-throated hummer that seems to be a bully, and dive-bombs "little princess," when she is at either of the feeders.
They both have been observed, today, still feeding at the phlox, and a few trumpet vine flowers.
The remaining 1) male, and (3) female Baltimore Orioles left sometime after feeding on grape jelly, at 7:20pm, last evening (Tues.) 9/3/2019.
The M/F catbirds have been constantly eating the suet cakes, together with grape jelly, for (2) days, and I sense they may start their migration tonight. It's 2:25pm, and 80 deg. Will be in the low 60's tonight - T-storm predicted around 5pm.
I pray for the safety of all the migraters, as they approach the hurricane.
It's sad to see them go. I hope to see them next spring.
