September and Hummingbirds

 September is the peak time for the backyard to turn into a buzzing cloud of Rubythroat hummingbirds  as they gather at the feeders preparing for their southbound migration. It is fascinating to watch these brilliant precision-flying tiny creatures glitter like jewels in the full sun as the congregate at the feeders.
It is Hummingbirds penchant to return to a favorite feeding area, year after year.
I will enjoy these captivating little jewels as long as they hang around, come first of October the tiny little birds will be heading south.



I have"four" feeders setup off the patio, and it has become a full-time job trying to keep them full. The feeders are filled twice sometimes three times a day. Each day two pitchers of sugar water are made up ready to use.
