Thursday night, August 24th we had a significant thunderstorm and rain. Thunder rumbled nonstop for almost an hour before the rain fell.
Thursday afternoon, before the storm the hummingbird activity was so busy and intense guests were in awe and felt they needed to duck as hummingbirds were flying past their heads.
Today, many of our hummingbird guests started migration and left our forest.
This evening 3 boys are still here. Tonight their habitat feels calm vs the frantic activity that occurred yesterday,
Every bird has favorite perches near their feeders. All are enjoying the following flowers: pansies, butterfly bushes, liatris, foxgloves, phlox, nasturtiums, zinnias, salvias, petunias, wild petunias, obedient plants, jewel weeds, cardinal flowers, blue lobelia, trumpet vines
