I agree with Marie and add that sometimes they find something better-
less wind exposure or richer food.    My hummingbirds disappear for about 8
to 10 days each summer and I figure there is a temporary food source they
prefer.  The squirrels disappeared from the feeders here for about 5 days,
and then were back.
