Yesterday afternoon around 5pm there was a significant thunder/ lightening storm, with an almost black sky. Our atmosphere continues to feel "unstable" this morning.
Perhaps some of the migrators decided to seek shelter here, as there appeared to be some new arrivals.
In the evening they spent time on the feeders.
This morning they're enjoying the floral banquets: Proven Winners' salvias, lantanas. Impatients, petunias, nasturtiums, clematis ragouchi, zinnias, coral bells.
There's some feeder visitation and perching this morning, too. Which hasn't occurred the past 10 days.
Today is predicted to be our last warm day with nights and days falling into ranges of 40-60 degrees.
Usually our "last bird" is sighted between the dates of Sept 28th to October 3rd. So we're approaching the end of our forest hummingbird hosting season. Safe travels and God's blessings to all our migrators.
