Sandra, who lives near Pike Lake, wonders what has happened to the hummingbirds.
She has been feeding hummers for 20 years and normally has at least 10 feeders out — and gets so many hummers that she could refill those feeders daily.
Not so this summer.
“This year I have noticed I hardly have any,” Sandra writes. “I was wondering if the storms and flooding we had over two weeks ago could have destroyed their nests? Would the birds then leave the area and go someplace else?”
So I submit the question to you, dear readers: Have you noticed a change in hummingbird activity recently? And if the numbers are down, why do you think that would be?
