It sounded like a trumpet then they were gone! The hummingbirds have been raptured!
Maybe it was more like a thunderstorm that came through. They always seem to arrive in the spring after a thunderstorm then leave in the fall after a thunderstorm. I still have a couple that haven't left yet.
They are a reminder of the changing of seasons. I love to see them arrive in the spring and it is a little sad to see them leave in the fall. I think I had a hundred or more this year. I had nine feeders and three like this one in the photo had to be filled everyday. I used five pounds of sugar or more a week.
They are a reminder of God's Word:
1Thessalonians 4: 16-18......For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
