THE HUMMERS HAVE ALWAYS LEFT OUR PLACE BETWEEN SEPT. 20 AND SEPT. 28
NATURE NOTES OF S.E. MINNESOTA
Our Humming birds and this tree frog have something in common. Our Hummer feeder hangs out side of our living room window and the sweetness of the feeder attracts insects. About a 1/2 hour after dark we often see the tree frog on the picture window hunting small insects. He tends to hunt for less than an hour each night an then moves on.
Monarchs will gather, sometimes in the hundreds, on particular trees and bushes late in the day this time of year. We call these trees "Butterly Trees", and Lake Louise St. Park has many of these. These Monarchs are the 4th and last generation of monarchs and are migrating to the lowland mountains of Mexico to overwinter.
