As August ends, observers in the north are already seeing fewer adult males. The females and juveniles left behind now face less competition for food. Fall-blooming flowers like spotted jewelweed are providing essential fuel for migration.

"The males left on August 21st and their place at the feeders has been taken by juveniles, feeding intensely before departing on their first trip south."
