To lighten the doldrums from the cool, rainy days we’ve been experiencing, I thought I’d share this short video with you just to cheer your day. September 19, 2019 was (we thought) the last day we saw the hummingbird. He visited with us as we ate lunch. I took this video through the kitchen window as he was busily nectaring on the last of the Spotted Jewelweed. Another good reason to like this prolific plant — late summer blossoms.
But it wasn’t the last day! Every three or four days, we see a hummingbird again at our nectar feeder. The orioles are long gone, but we left the nectar feeder up for the bees and for hummingbirds, apparently, traveling south from Canada.
