It gets like this each year in late August thru mid Oct. Usually they eat 4 quarts of sugar water every other day. Turn the sound up and listen to how noisy they are.

Wonderful little birds.  We are in SW Iowa and do not get that many.  About the most we get at one time is around 20 or so.  Usually have 5 to 7 feeders out.  Great video.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the video. We never see that many of them here. They are pretty much all gone now for the year.

We have 6 feeders out. Usually during the spring/summer months we have 8 to 10 around and only keep 2 feeders up. I guess we are located in a stop over to rest and feed up before heading further south for the winter.

You are due to get six more---- mine left here Aug. 28. Two stragglers showed up three days later, tanked up at the feeders and left yesterday. I'll leave the feeders up for a few more days and then wash and put them away for the winter. They go back out again on the tenth of May just in case, but the first birds don't usually show up until the twentieth. It sure seems empty on my deck without the feisty little things zipping around.

We usually put one back out in early March. Sometimes we have a couple of early birds and we figured it can't hurt.
