2011 Project 365 - MyLeroyPhotography

As our temperatures go down, so too does our hummingbird population. We had about 100+ in mid-September, refilling the feeders 4 times a day; but as the temps have cooled, the birds have continued on their migration south. Today we had about 15+, but since we're supposed to be in the 40s tonight, I'm sure there will be fewer tomorrow. We've used about 50 pounds of sugar this season, so their moving on will be good for my pocketbook, but I'll sure miss watching them.
