Hummingbirds are drinking a lot of nectar

It will not be too long before the Atlanta area Ruby-throated hummingbirds begin their migration.

Customers are reporting a large uptick  in the  number of hummingbirds at their feeders each day. The same rise in volume of birds happen each year at this same time. By August and through September this NE Georgia area experiences it’s greatest number of these beautiful birds.

The reason appears to be that A: We have our normal birds here + B: All of their baby hummingbirds are here + C: We have the northern migrating birds here as well.

They will be with us until it gets cold so keep refreshing the nectar and cleaning those hummingbird feeders.Ruby-throated hummingbird at window feeder
