We have a handful of hummingbirds visiting the feeder. You hear a lot of bickering among them, but they're too shy to venture very close when I'm outside. I always get anxious when the numbers are low, asking myself, "Will they come this year?" They always do, but for now, I anxiously wait.

I thought the migration had peaked, but we were overwhelmed by another swarm today. Thankfully, Dave comes home for lunch and was able to refill the feeders. The Hummingbird Society says that one ounce will feed five hummingbirds. We're using over 130 ounces each day, so I'd say we're feeding about 650 hummingbirds a day. That's a lot!
