Ruby-throated Hummingbird, Archilochus colubris: Horse Cove near Gurley, Alabama
The hummingbird migration has been amazing here in North Alabama over the last month. Around the third week of August I was seeing a couple of dozen birds at a time, but by mid September I was seeing a hundred or more at a time. It was just unbelievable! I was going through five pounds a sugar every three days at the peak. Now they have slowed down and I am only seeing a few dozen at a time. The latest date I have had hummers is October 8th. will be interesting to see what the latest date will be this year.
