I am still seeing hummers at my feeder, but the sugar water is not being 
depleted as fast as in previous weeks.

On 26 Aug. 2018 I saw the last male hummingbird.  28 Aug. I saw the last female 
at my feeders.  As I stood watching the goldfinches & nuthatch in the crab 
apple tree outside my window, I realized that for more than a wk.,  I hadn't 
see ANY of the 25-30 (English), predominately male, house sparrows  that have 
been here since before last winter. Not one. May they not return! They killed 
too many tree swallows & bluebirds. The chipping sparrow(s), not unexpectedly, 
are also gone.

I am pleased to see many different butterflies & many, many more monarchs than 
I have seen in years. Must be my imagination but the monarchs seem larger than 
in the last few yrs.. They visit my cosmos more than any other flowers in my 
flower bed.

We're still seeing occasional young ospreys as we're out along Rte. 90.  A few 
T. vultures that roost down in the village are still here.

My thrill was being outside early last wk. to see 6 chimney swifts go down into 
the tall chimney of the girl's dorm at the US Academy. I hadn't been able to be 
outside in the evening to see them & indeed, thought repairs to the chimney 
last fall may have included covering the chimney with screen.
