My hummers are still around and the chipmonks are very active - one was on 
the tube feeder eating sunflower seeds yesterday - he had climbed down from the 
roof to where it hangs below the eaves of the garage and just fitted nicely in 
it's little round dish.  However, I have been predicting an early, cold 
winter - this has been a most peculiar summer.  We've had very little real heat - 
only two or three days in the low 90s, a quite a few that didn't even reach 80. 
 It was 52 degrees this morning, and hasn't been above 71 all day - most 
unusual Labor Day weather - it is often one of the hottest weekends of the summer. 
 Although the sky has been overcast and the humidity very high, very little 
rain has fallen and we are really dry.  The weather report says we had only 2.5 
inches of rain in August.  I haven't carried water this year, but things have 
been on the dry side since May or June. At least it hasn't been the drought 
we had for the two previous years.  I guess only time will tell, but I'm about 
ready to give up on this year.
