Click on headline for full story with photo(s)

By Allison Horseman and Cindy Clouse

Somerset, Ky. - The Welding Program at Somerset Community College was recently faced with a challenging situation: five of their welding machines, necessary tools for students to learn how to weld, were down.

Wendy Burt: Still has both male and female Hummingbirds

Recommends maintaining a feeder well into October for the last migrating Hummingbirds

Wendy But writes:
While I still have both male and female Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds - a few of each - here on Melson Ridge, I suspect most of them are migrating through from points north. I'm always sad when the last hummingbird departs.

And while most of our hummingbirds have moved on, Kentucky ornithologists recommend that people keep at least one hummingbird feeder up and filled with fresh sugar solution well into October to accommodate migrating birds. In addition, a few Rufous Hummingbirds (not normally found in Kentucky) have overwintered in Kentucky in the past few years. --Wendy But

Jon Halsey: Male hummers have departed Knifley

Jon Halsey writes:
Our males have left. As usual, the females will stick around for probably another week. I think they're enjoying having the feeders to themselves without being driven off.

This weird weather may also play a factor I don't have a clue if they're triggered by weather or by length of the days, either way I don't think I'd be too keen of flying south over the Gulf just now. - Jon Halsey
