    I just got back from the Keweenaw Monday and the feeder was empty so I refilled it. When I took it out to hang it up I had a hummer about a foot from my face trying to get some breakfast and me without a camera.

    We had three at any one time last week near Vanderbilt. All female. One reely small. Hope others are feeding them there. Refreshed our feeders when we came back Tuesday. Nothing yet here.

    Had one in my rose of Sharon today. Normally see them there regularly but this is the first one I've seen in them this year.

    I spent a summer semester in Elberta at the Ford Forestry Center. Our cook for that semester was Naomi; she also worked at the Hilltop! What a positively awesome summer that was!

    Lots of females and young here in Goodells (St Clair County). I haven't seen a male in a few days.

    Nope, didn't stop at the Hilltop. We had muffins from the Jam Pot to eat on the way home.

    I've been watching the hummingbirds in yard and have not seen a Male since we got back from the Keweenaw. Guess they must be headed south already.

    Seen a small one flying around a couple hours ago, seems kind of late for any to still be around.

    Muskegon eh? I switch water every three days. All summer. Saw one in May at front porch feeder. None in back yard. Will pull them in October. Sad. Are you near woods?

    Saw one in the UP right about this time of year. I'm sure he was beating a speedy path south.

    Man in Mack City had one hanging around last October. I did put a feeder out when we were at cabin, but saw no activity. I put fresh nectar out tonight. Two more weeks and I’ll pulling the plug. Monarchs disappeared quickly it seems. My butterfly Bush is still producing flowers.
