hello all

*_Fall for Hummingbirds Contest_*

Attract migrating hummingbirds to your feeders for a chance at prizes.

Hummingbirds are being found with increasing frequency in the fall &
winter seasons in Pennsylvania. About 99% of the hummingbirds that are
found east of the Mississippi are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, but
sometimes during fall and winter other species of hummingbirds pass
through Pennsylvania as the travel from breeding grounds in Alaska to
wintering spots along the Gulf Coast. Ornithologists are very interested
in learning more about these wayward little birds. Your participation
can help contribute to the growing body of information about migrating
hummingbirds. If you are able to get a confirmed hummingbird to visit
your feeders, you can win a prize. In addition, researchers with federal
banding permits would like to band the late season hummingbirds, if the
homeowners are willing.

*_NOTE:_*Maintain a clean feeder whenever you leave it out for birds. It
is recommended that you clean the feeder at least weekly, more often if
the sugar mixture gets cloudy. The mixture for the feeders should always
be 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. No additives or dyes are ever needed.
If temperatures drop below freezing, bring the feeders in overnight. It
is a myth that keeping feeders up will prevent them from migrating in
the fall. They will come and go as they please. We are only helping them
fuel up in their journey.

*_PRIZES:_*Any hummingbird species that can be confirmed will be entered
into a $100 drawing.Any species other than Ruby-throated Hummingbird
will automatically win $25.This contest will run from 10/1 to 1/31 of
each year.

Contest is sponsored by Kauffman Insurance Agency in Mifflintown and
Lost Creek Shoe Shop/Optics from Oakland Mills.Contest is limited to
anyone in the Juniata, Mifflin, Perry and Snyder County area.Anyone in
the state, outside of the above areas who are getting hummingbirds, is
still welcome to contact us for further information.They can be eligible
for other prizes and contests going on.
