Back to this week's update

Leaving Canada?

The reporting week began with this Oct. 5 report from Mississisauga, Ontario:

"Another beautiful day and another hummingbird at our feeder and flowers. There was one visitor at 7:45am and then the action really started around noon. At least 12 more visits to the feeder and numerous visits to the flowers. I also observed the hummingbird catching insects in the air between the maple tree and burning bush. The last visit to the feeder just before dark lasted 9 minutes. I hope my motion detection camera will catch any early morning visits this one may make before continuing the journey." —Glenna
