Winter Banquet Ahead
Hummingbirds headed south of the U.S.-Mexico border for winter will find a banquet of flowers. Unlike in North America, they don't need feeders when tropical flowers are everywhere! Do you think hummers prefer flowers to feeders?
"Numerous Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were feeding on the Transylvanian Sage at the New York Botanical Garden. At one point, there were 3 hummingbirds present simultaneously."
