Farewell to the Hummingbirds

We have a hummingbird feeder on the breezeway inside our monastery cloister, and it provides much enjoyment for the sisters who love to watch the hummingbirds come to drink the nectar (and occasionally fight over who gets to drink!). And we get other visitors to the feeder as well, including orioles, wrens, wasps, and lizards! But we put it out especially for the hummingbirds of course. Since they started flying around and looking for food in April, we put the feeder out early, but now that October has come we haven\’t seen a single bird in days. Probably they have all flown south for the winter, but we hope to see them again come spring!
 Enjoying a drink…
Just a little more…
Now off to points south!
