Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Hmm.

You're correct, and I overstated the case.

They eat MOSTLY nectar.

You have to watch those fierce little critters.

They have a special like for imitation batmen, their brains being soft and easy to digest. And not too filling.

When they can get it.

I have heard that hummingbirds catch rides on Canada geese, but I don't believe it. I think they eat bugs on the way.

When they migrate they don't follow the flowers, they follow the bugs. The bugs are the first thing to show in Spring and the last to go in Fall.

The Rufous Hummingbird migrates from Mexico to Alaska. One of the longest bird migrations around.

I have an exceptional amount of house finches and two other larger species of bird hitting my hummer feeders hard this year. Strange, they haven't eaten fruit I have left out, but they love that sugar water. Must be some plant the drought and fires got last year isn't around much this year.

Well, he was mistaken, some species of humming birds do eat insects, but not all, which makes you wrong now. You should have quit while you were ahead.

Hmmm, I will make one of those.

I love hummingbirds. They are the messengers of the gods.

If you use hummingbird feeders, take them down September 1.
Otherwise the birds are apt to stay around too late, and starve on the way South.

They leave when they want to leave. They know better than us, they have been doing it for a while.

I've watched them come and go for 10 years. Seems they all pack up and leave at the same time. They left late Sept last year. Had a straggler or two stop by and keep going. Have seen them all disappear overnight in late August. Have seen them come swarming in the Spring by the hundreds when I lived in their migration path. There are not enough flowers that early to support them.

There is a huge area around the Mexican border, and the Gulf of Mexico itself that are not known for an abundance of daffodils or other such flowers. They follow the stream and river beds when the winter runoff starts and the bugs start blooming, and spread out from there. Bugs start decreasing and they bug out.

"Another of the untrue facts about hummingbirds: keeping your feeders out too long in the fall will upset the hummingbirds' normal migration pattern.

The hummingbird migration is causes by hormonal changes that take place within the hummingbird's body. These hormonal changes are triggered by the changing length of daylight. Since it is the shorter hours of daylight in the fall that causes the hummingbirds to migrate, you don't have to worry that keeping your feeders out too long in the fall will cause the birds to hang around and not migrate.

Many species of Hummingbirds that migrate to the United States must travel very long distances from Mexico and Central America to get here. Many Ruby-throated Hummingbirds must travel 2,000 miles to go from Panama to their destination in Canada.

One of the most incredible facts about hummingbirds is that this 2,000 mile journey will also include a 500 mile non-stop flight to cross the Gulf of Mexico."

Wildfires and droughts and human denuding of the landscape affects the plant life more than the animal life. Plants are notorious for NOT running real fast. However, bugs are always around. I don't care what anyone says, bugs are the prime diet for hummingbirds.

Unable to answer my point. I see I have stumped you as usual.

Are you having a senile hallucination that you are a little boy and mom is cooking for you?

Sad senile old Dave.

They lose their fear of humans. You can stand right next to them while they feed, and it is said they can be hand fed. I've had them a foot in front of my face staring at me. I've seen them stare down cats hovering a few inches more than that.

Funny thing I saw a couple of nights ago. I have a feeder right outside my dining room window. Just inches away. They feed real heavy just before it gets dark. They feed later than any other bird I have noticed. A female flew down and perched on it, just sitting there. A male came by a few times trying to put the make on her, and a younger male tried his hand, too. They buzz around real close. She just sat there looking up to the sky disinterested. The older male landed and fed a few times, trying to strike up a conversation, the younger male once. She just sat there looking bored. This went on about 20 minutes. She took a sip of her drink about 3 times during the whole event. Finally she flew off. Dave's Hummingbird Lounge at Happy Hour.
