Two days before I took ill - I was up visiting my sister-in-law's home in Lake County. While we were talking she happened to mention that she had never seen hummingbirds sticking around this late into the year. This was November 6th. As she spoke - she noticed that the feeder outside the dining area was empty. As she prepared more sugar water and brought in the feeder to fill it she said, "You won't believe what happens when I put this back up."
I grabbed my camera and was indeed unprepared for the onslaught of tiny birds that rushed for this food source as soon as she replaced it on it's hook. And more surprised at how little heed they paid to me and the camera nearby.
