Hummingbird Garden

Posted on Nov 14, 2015

This November has been a warm one until recently! As mentioned yesterday, the month is typically known for its avian rarities in the Northeast with southerly flow events followed by strong cold fronts, moving those that traveled up on those winds back down to coastal areas especially. Cave Swallows are a featured species in this phenomenon, with some more still being seen around the Great Lakes today and hundreds of others transported back to the New England coast to presumably move south again. Hummingbirds are also being seen more frequently in late autumn and early winter across the Northeast in recent years, and if you have any gardens still remaining keep an eye on your flowers. It may also be handy to keep a well-cleaned hummingbird feeder out for another month. You never know what species will show up right now…
