The End of Hummer Season

It’s been at least a week since we’ve seen any hummingbirds at the feeder. I guess they’ve left for their winter home already. I sure will miss having them around. My person and I enjoyed watching them all summer, fighting over the feeder and flying around the flower garden. They’re really nice birds to have around, even if they do migrate like dumb robins. My person says she’ll miss them, too, but that she won’t miss having to keep their feeder clean and filled. Wow. I sure hope she doesn’t feel that way about MY feeder. What a thing for her to say!

Yes, Shadow, I miss them too! Now the main birds that come to the feeders near my outdoor cage on the porch are those little annoying chickadees, with their little weird cries. Boy, do those things multiply!
It seems like there are a million of them (not that I am counting!)

But my pal the woodpecker is still around. He visits me often and we call back and forth to each other, "PEEEK! PEEEK!"

Pretty soon it will be too cold to spend too much time outside, though and I will have to watch him from inside the big window. Not as much fun.
