Some have believed that feeding hummingbirds will stop their necessary migration. There is no scientific evidence of this. With the long journey ahead, they can definitely use the extra fuel. Of course, the bonus is what a delight they are to watch. While they sometimes seem to compete pretty aggressively for the feeders, I looked out yesterday right before dawn and there was a hummer sitting at every spot for a total of seven. It would be wonderful if they did this when I was actually sitting out there, but no such luck. 🙂 Click on pictures to enlarge.
