Bon Voyage

Several days ago, the hummingbirds were eating voraciously, getting ready for their journey. They were scrabbling and fighting all over the place.

These two look like they're on a collision course!

But now I think this is the only one still here. She seems to be eating when and where she pleases, and I haven't seen any of the others in a couple of days.

Her only competition at the nectar feeders seems to be the little chickadee. Look how fat she is!
She must have discovered bugs on this cryptomeria, because after she would visit the feeders, she would go and pick away at the ends of the branches, and you can see she's eating, because her tongue is out. I guess she'll be leaving soon. Godspeed, little one.

How cute! She is FAT! Wonder if I'm getting ready to migrate - I seem to be filling out too (haha)!

Love all your hummingbird shots and a neat capture with the tongue out!
