Hey guys….guess what?  The hummers are still visiting us!  We thought they’d all headed south by now, but we’ve still seen some on our feeder.

Like this one…can you see him there?  We think he flew in from up north and is making a pit stop here in our yard.  He’s filling his tank so he can continue his long journey south.  Did you know that many hummingbirds spend winter in Mexico or Central America somewhere? That’s probably where this guy is headed.  Wow! That’s a long way off!  His wings sure are gonna be tired when he gets there!

Drink up, Mr. Hummer!  Have a safe flight…and we’ll see you next year!

  1. We love our hummers too. We haven’t seen any around her lately. We aren’t allowed to have any hummer feeders since so many of us live outside and might decide to have a hummer for breakfast. Hope you have a super Sunday.

  2. We’ve never seen a hummer. Only the hummer car. MOL! You are very lucky, Ernie, to have such awesome bird tv!

  3. Oh boy! Love hummers…..I bet Wally used a “hummer observation” photo to win the “Bird Watching” merit badge in Cat Scouts!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  4. Your mommy’s feeder is like MY mommy’s feeder. And once they start over the Gulf of Mexico on their journey they fly non stop to Mexico. Then on to Central America if that is where they came from instead of Mexico.

  5. He sure looks like a tasty hummer. Er, we mean handsome, yeah. Handsome.

  6. We’ve never seen a hummer. This one looks yummy. Maybe it’s because he’s well fed by your mom… Purrs

  7. We love hummers but they don’t migrate through our area. Mom had lots of hummers when she lived in New Jersey.

  8. Snow in the Dakotas on Friday…. The lil guy better get going.

  9. We love hummingbirds, too! It’s amazing to think that those tiny little birds migrate so far every year!

  10. We don’t see hummingbirds here, but we love they are amazing. Can you imagine being so small and traveling so small for the winter? Without a PTU and car, too!

  11. That is a long journey,xx Speedy

  12. I like them too! The first time we were lucky to see them was when we moved to Texas. Lovely bridies!

  13. That’s a long journey for those little hummers to go. Thank you for making sure they have enough *fuel* to make it to their destination! 🙂

  14. Oh wow you get to watch hummers. We haven’t seen any lately but I bet they are filling their tanks for their long trek south.

  15. Wow what a great view, we don’t have those birds here. ENjoy.

  16. Hummers are the best. I can see the one on your feeder. We have two feeders in our yard and the male hummer tries to defend both of them. They’re here year-round so I get to watch them often.

  17. OH ERNIE WE SEE THE HUMMER…WHEN HE FINISHES THERE TELL HIM WE HAVE A REST STOP HERE AT OUR HOUSE TOO. WE HAVE NOT SEEN ONE AT OUR FEEDER SINCE 9/28/13…YES MOM RECORDS WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE AND WHEN SHE LAST SEES THEM.
    HUGS MADI YOUR BFFF

  18. It’s great this hummingbird found a nice place to take a rest and fill up belly before heading to the south!

  19. Those hummingbirds know where to have their winter vacations!

  20. I think the “hummers” are still here because they are confused since our weather has been so unseasonably warm

  21. Maybe he came from my house? I haven’t seen any hummers for a while. They’ve all gone south from here.

  22. What lucky kitties to get to watch humming birds! We don’t get to see those where we are. My kitties (Cinco and Manna) do love to sit on the balcony and watch the geese and swans though! Chasing dragonflies can be a lot of fun.

  23. We have magpies, sparrows and blue tits xxx

  24. What fabulous bird TV. I wish we had hummers. safe journey to them because they have a really long flight ahead. Hugs GJ x

  25. We think that our Hummers have left for the year. It got down into the 40s in late September. But TBT is leaving 2 feeders up for late travellers.

  26. We don’t have as many hummers as we used to, I don’t know why, and I miss them. I do have lots of flowers they like just for the few that do stop by. I’m glad you are providing yours with a nice feeding station to fuel up for their long flight south. Enjoy the show while it lasts, Ernie!

  27. That’s pretty late in the season for hummers, isn’t it? They must really like your place!

    Purrs,

  28. I have never seen hummers. Our main migrating birds are swallows. They left early this year so I hope it doesn’t mean it will be a hard winter.

  29. Wish we had hummers!! Safe journey pal!!

  30. WOW Ernie, I had no idea they flew that far. I will keep a lookout and see if they fly by our place!

  31. WOW!! THat is too cool. We are pretty sure ours have gone.
    WE hope so because ;last week we had a few cold nights.
    Have a pawsome day!!

    Treasure,Tiger, JJ and Julie

  32. Ours are all gone. So be happy you are still seeing them. They do have a long way to fly yet.

  33. Maybe he can take HHGutt back to Mexico with him. Does that seem fair?

  34. Hey that is so cool that he stopped in to fuel up at your house, Ernie!

  35. So dat iz where da Hummerz go!! Me alwayz wunerd! We get a few here in da Summer too n den dey iz gone!!! Dey are so purrty n so fast too!

  36. I think prolly he’s headed here, to SF, where it’s like 150 degrees today (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating–a little.)

  37. Wow, you sure are lucky! We hope the little guy didn’t wait too long and makes it all the way on his journey. Hummers were my mom’s favorites and they always remind me of her.

  38. We wish Mom Paula would set up a humming bird feeder outside our bird tv.

  39. Ernie, how lucky you were to be at the window when that hummer dropped in. That will be a good memory and something to dream about during the cold winter months. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  40. He needs to get his little bags packed and get going.

  41. Hummers are so much fun! We don’t get them here, but one year we stayed at a vacation home outside of Yosemite. It was an official migration stop for the hummers. The people who owned the place would tag and photograph them. I’ve never seen more in one place in my life! It was SO cool.
    : ) GG

  42. We are impressed, because we have here in Germany no Hummingbirds. Your humans are so kind to give them a great place to rest.
    Have fun watching these lovely birds!

  43. Us too! We had stopped changing their food (every two days is high maintenance!) because we thought they went South but they are still here too! Enjoy them 🙂

  44. The Hummers sure move a looong looong way !

  45. I hear those hummers have to really drink a lot. More food than even our Buddy!
