You are correct with Sweet Coltsfoot.

I thought it was coltsfoot, but the internet showed it as being yellow, not white.

Comment on Hummingbirds return to Crane Lake by Vacation http://blog.visitcranelake.com/hummingbirds-return-crane-lake/#comment-321243 Thu, 30 Mar 2017 21:29:48 +0000 http://blog.visitcranelake.com/?p=3602#comment-321243 Yes, these are typical numbers for spring migration. Quite a few Hummers stick around and raise their families, during that time they don’t visit the feeders as often. After the young ones fledge, they mob the feeders again. The Ruby-throated Hummingbirds leave Crane Lake by Sept 15th.

I’m trying to get a picture of what hummingbird populations are like that far north. Are those numbers typical for spring migration? What are your numbers like during the summer once spring migration is over? Do you get even larger numbers during fall migration after the young have fledged and southbound migrants pass through? And when do your last hummers leave?

Comment on In search of Ross’ Light by Lindsay E Frost http://blog.visitcranelake.com/in-search-of-ross-light/#comment-318536 Sat, 10 Sep 2016 23:58:58 +0000 http://visitcranelake.com/blog/?p=1906#comment-318536 I remember being told that the amber yellow light after a rain in the late afternoon was called Ross Light. This was when I was growing up in the north woods of WI. And that is what I call the amber yellow light after a late in the day rain storm in KY.
