The hummingbirds that come here think we are a hotel and restaurant. They know they have a reservation every year on March 15th and that is when they arrive right on time. They hang around for a while and then they leave for a while. They probably go farther north where they find more flowers and then they come back. They left earlier this year and have been gone for a few weeks. I wondered if they would come by to say bye bye. I thought they would and I hoped they would. Yesterday I saw one around my Lantana bush so I hurried to clean the feeders and refill with the nectar waiting in the fridge. I expect they will hang around a few days and be gone for the winter. The hummingbird hotel and restaurant will reopen March 15th 2011.
