The Hummingbird Fall Migration 2015!

Enjoy Them While You Can!

August is upon us and sadly the Fall Migration will start by the end of the month in some Northern Areas!

We have built an experimental page to track the Fall Migration asking for your sightings!

We need your LAST sighting of the Summer at your feeders.

Give Them a Helping Hand!

We are hoping to help our little friends by for-warning those who will see large influxes of hummers to their area to hang extra feeders to accommodate our weary travelers.

We especially like the Dr. JB's Hummingbird Feeder shown below.....Very Easy to Clean, and Very Bee Resistant!

NOTE: Some states have experienced drought conditions this Summer causing a shortage of nectar flowers, just another reason to help our beloved hummers!

Hummingbird Feeder Bees!

Bees, Wasps, Hornets, Yellow Jackets and expecially Honey Bees can present problems with our feeders!

We experienced our first Honey Bee invasion this Summer!

We're Excited to Have Our First Season
"Live Streaming Bird Cam"!

We now have a live streaming nature cam on one of our feeders. We ran into problems with the invasion of Honey Bees who occupied the feeder to the extent that the hummers could not use the feeder. Hopefully, the problem is solved and the streaming is back online!

Visit our streaming page and check back often to see our hummingbirds in action.

We will be broadcasting live streaming of our hummingbirds until they leave on their Fall migration trip south.
