The Hummingbirds are beginning to migrate south.
I have been seeing them at the feeder each day still, but I don’t know if it is the same Ruby-throated Hummingbirds that I had nesting here over the past few months or I am seeing new ones that are migrating south.
I’ll probably keep the feeder up for a few more weeks, just in case there are some that are passing by that need some energy.
The other day I was watched as a Tufted Titmouse landed on the Hummingbird feeder.
I have seen this before, you think that the bird is just taking a rest. It found a quiet place to stop for a bit, but no…
It starts to tip over and move down the pole…
Then it takes a big drink of water from the center section of the Hummingbird feeder. It is an area that you fill with clean water to try to catch any ants that might try to get into the feed.
Birds are always looking for fresh water. I do have a bird bath nearby, but I guess it was just too much trouble for this Tufted Titmouse to fly over to it.
Remember to stay healthy and stay safe!
