I searched all through Sibley, hoping to find that the bird on the ground in my yard was not an Ovenbird, but to no avail. Hopefully one of its siblings will fly into your yard and flourish.

Re: Hummers gone

Bill Moore
 

Larry,

Your view on sugar water consumption and mine differ. Sugar water consumption cannot tell you how many hummers are resident in your area. It can only tell you how many your feeding not whether they are resident, migrating through or coming visiting from your neighbors.

Hummers have emptied 155 feeders here this year  So I had over 30,000 hummer feeder days (50 hummers per cup solution), new ornithological unit which I will trademark.

hey Bill on Hoot Owl, 

thx for your promptation invitation hahaha

i have an unedited unrated hum report for our yard in August 2020 might be dangerous to share on this forum, so much hummingbird cussing, haha, but what the hay ?

Hummingbird summary August 2020
 
big difference this year was the sheer no. of hum plants we have in our back yard, incl many salvia sp, stache, zauschneria, penstemon, fireweed lining the east and south fence lines (Merry's and Kevin's lines)

neighbor Ray must still be doing his bee hives, as they were swarming at times, constantly at our water feature and at humfeeders

BUT 

it looked, sounded, felt like our "hum population" was in crescendo most of the month of August ?

our latest RUHU Fall first Observed Date (FOD) since moving here 8 yrs ago, was 07 August, same for CA, just in our small back yard, so we can't extrapolate from this to anything, eh?

but, here ya go, our last observed adult male BC was 24 August per Missy's notes, and she took daily notes

SW consumption rate / conversion to no. of hums / maybe ok for steady-state breeding populations, but we can not imagine this useful during migration when there is so much turnover ?

RU display dives were humorous for the 1st time here (in 8 yrs?) reminded me of ALHU dives I saw and heard at the UCSB / CA Arboretum in 1999 (my west coast hummer trip)

every year is different, eh Bill?

I have one last feeder still up feeding straggler hummers. Seem to be mostly Black Chinned, even had a male.

I doubt it will be many more days. When the feeder gets way down they’ll only get a half batch.

Hummers gone

Jeff Brough
 

Sunday before Labor Day I still had three hummingbirds hitting my two feeders.  One was a Calliope, not sure about the other two.  Monday I saw two of them chasing each other in the morning, but when the big storm blew in in the early afternoon they were gone.  I figured that was the last of them, but Wednesday morning I saw a solitary bird guarding one of the feeders.  I was around all day, but didn't see him again, and now he's gone too.  I never get many, but the big push for me seems to be a bit later than I read from Brian Carrigan and others.  Funny, because I'm north of Idaho Falls, about two miles south of Ucon.

This looks like a Pectoral Sandpiper to me. Note the lack of contrast between cap and supercilium, lack of white eye ring, fat/chunky body, long pale based bill, and heavily streaked center of breast.

It certainly has the capped appearance Jason, and different from the other 2 birds. Think you may be right!
There were 2 at Indian Creek 8 years ago and I remember being struck by the brown cap at the time.
