Ruby-throated hummingbirds are moving though our county in great numbers. I have more than I can count visiting my feeders and flowers...although the numbers do vary daily. They move in...stay a while to refuel and move on...but not without giving us a fun show!
We should continue to have them move though Bartow County until a few days into October. To help them fatten up for their long journey to Central and South America...I up the sugar from 1/4 to 1/3 per cup of water at this time. It isn't to late to put up a feeder and they are on sale at many of our local stores.
My video was taken a week ago. They are still swarming like bees. I also have included photos taken yesterday of a hummer sharing a feeder with wasp! Plus...I got a picture of three sharing a feeder. This sharing the feeder only happens during the fall migration.
Interesting Fact: Hummingbirds only use their feet for perching. They do not walk.
Hope y'all are enjoying the hummers as much as I am!!!
