[CT Birds] Hummers

I have noticed my female hummers in plants much more for the past few weeks 
but don't recall seeing that at the end of past seasons.  I just saw a 
female now  and I saw my last male hummer on the 2nd.  Last year I saw males 
until the 4th of September and females until the 24th.

Angela,
I've noticed a similar pattern.  They seem to "work" the flowers more at the
end of the season.  Just now (~ 7:15) had a female Ruby-throat thoroughly
work through a fuchsia then go to a feeder.

9/15 - New Milford yard - one male and one female ruby-throat today - the
male goes to the feeder but the female prefers flowers - Cuphea "David
Verity"  (red tubes) and Salvia "Coral Nymph" seem to be the favorites, also

hosta still  flowering.
