Topping Up Before the Journey

    Our hummingbirds are beginning to disappear, one by one, as they travel south for their winter stay in warmer climes.  Some of the hummers that live in the Robson Valley during the summer months spend their winters in Texas.  There are still a few around, but the nectar in the hummingbird feeder is not disappearing as quickly as it did weeks ago, when we had our full component of hummers.   I took this photo of one hummer topping up at the feeder yesterday.

  1. It is usually the first week of September that the traveling hummingbirds pass through along the Ohio River in Indiana. We have a lot of jewel weed this year, which they love.
