This juvenile male hummingbird showed up on 10/21/21 and was only feeding on flowers (Turks cap and firecracker plant). He tried a couple of feeders but didnít act like he knew what to do. He came early the next morning and fed from feeder every 10-15 minutes for a couple of hours. Never saw him again all day, before sunset or the next morning at sunrise. I was hoping to attract a Rufous to my garden this year and curious if he would decide to winter here. I am happy to have played a small part in helping him on his journey.
Another data point: I had 30-40 ruby-throated hummingbirds at the peak of migration this year. I had 15 feeders out and changed sugar water daily. The last one (juvenile male) left on 10/17/2021.
