Still getting several hummers a day passing through at my feeders & salvias (I fill my deck with them each year just for the hummers.They prefer blue salvia guarantica to the reds, believe it or not) I assume they are getting fat for a flight over the sound to long Island? Or do they travel the coast? I don't know.
Beloved catbirds skipped a few weeks ago.
Also lots of Goldfinch, some titmice, chickadees, carolina wrens, blue jays. Haven't seen anything unusual this migration, like the year of the vireos and warblers & redstarts two years ago! I have my water feature pumping water all night hoping to attract.
