My current male who has been here for several days appears to be knapping. Guess thats a clue to the inactivity in my area.

My current male hummer is steadfast and bold not to be hurried by me. This afternoon I was out back working on removing the used up tomato plants , raking and weed cutting and such spent a good hour out there in the area where the male likes to perch and Im thinking he most likely took the hint and moved on. Not so hes back on his perch , at least I will have him one more night.

Sadly I have to report that my male has moved on, currently only seeing an occasional hummer visit my flowers and feeders.

It was only a matter of time Steve. Sorry to hear your Male has finally departed.
I am also down to a bird or two but that's normal for this location when I leave for FL in early Sep.
Unusual that we have had much cooler temps here the past several weeks, high 40's overnight and mid 60's during the day. That's about 10 degrees below normal here.
That of course would prompt the birds to head south sooner but our temps don't seem to be the major factor in their departure south, seems that other factors come into play. Daylight hours, temps, insect availability among a few that that come to mind.

Sep 10, 7AM and a few newcomers showed up early morning.
Only saw 3 yesterday, and a few minutes ago counted 5 at the feeders.
Unusually, 3 around the little humm-blossom out front.
We just might leave more behind this year as we get on the road tomorrow for the "sunshine" state?
