Where do those humming birds go anyway?

Do the hummingbirds go somewhere for the winter? I haven’t seen the four or five colorful little birds that regularly dine on my sugar water mixture.

In my non-scientific thought process it makes sense that the humming birds would leave earlier than the other birds as they are so small and as hard as they flap their wings I bet they have to stop a lot along the way. The book I have been using as a reference on local wildlife is of no help.

For example, the salmon that fishermen were snagging the last couple of weeks at Green Mountain Reservoir only live in British Columbia according to my book.

Further research indicates the salmon were introduced to Colorado in the 1950s, so I am no longer convinced in the accuracy of my current reference guide.

I spent the day last Saturday at the 4-H Club’s Craft Bazaar at the fairgrounds. This was their second year of what they hope to make an annual event. I was impressed by not only the number of vendors, but even more so by the quality of the local talent. If you didn’t make it to the show this year make sure you watch for it next year. It is a great chance to pick up some unique items for gifts or your own use that you can’t buy in the usual stores and support the local 4-H club.

On Friday the new Credit Union of the Rockies will be having an open house from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Our community always benefits when companies chose to locate their business here, so stop by to welcome them if you get a chance.

On Saturday, the Corvette Club will be returning to Kremmling at 3 p.m. to deliver carloads of food to our food bank. I don’t know how quickly they will be coming through town but you can check with our local Chamber of Commerce for details. There might be a subtle pun in that last sentence I should apologize for as it was intentional.

Our local Chamber located at the town square is a drop-off point for cell phone recycling from Oct. 6-18. Non-working or unused cell phones can be donated to benefit the Women’s Funding Network. Some phones will be reprogrammed as 9-1-1 phones for use by victims of domestic violence, the elderly and other people who may be at risk. Materials from the other phones can be recycled and used in other products.

” If you know where my hummingbirds went please share it with me. You can also continue to send any other items of local interest to Larry Ebersole at Amentalengineer@cs.com or P.O Box 564, Kremmling, CO 80459.
