The Hummingbirds are “Staging” at my house again and their numbers are impressive! It’s tough to count them, but my best guess is over 50 are here now and they are HUNGRY! I am filling my 5 feeders 2 to 3 times a day now! Thats 1 to 1 1/2 gallons per day! WOW! I LOVE them! I am going to hate seeing them leave for the Fall/Winter this year. Until they do, the Show is on!
