Hummingbirds are active at feeders and at flowers, sourcing protein from spiders and insects and sipping nectar for sugars.
Male hummingbirds start their southbound migration this month, averaging 20 miles a day to their wintering grounds in Central America and Mexico. Females head south later, with juveniles sticking around until early October.
Migration begins. Keep feeders full with fresh food for "stopover" migrants.
Pinon Jays, normally found exclusively in the pinon/juniper areas, gobble lots of seed at bird feeders.
Geese, ducks, cranes, etc. usually fly in 'V' formation. The theory is that all, but lead bird, gain lift from wing-tipped vortices produced by lead bird.
American Goldfinches finish nesting late this month.
