Default September Update

Our male hummingbirds left about a week ago but the females are still here. We have at least 4, and probably more, females still actively visiting our feeders throughout each day. It's usually the males who aggressively defend "their" feeders against others wanting to get a drink, but now the females are aggressively defending the feeders and chasing other "intruding" females away. They are drinking quite a bit each day now, likely in preparation for their migration south soon.
