A hummingbird must keep its approximately 940 feathers in shape to maintain its aerodynamics. Also, a hummingbird does not molt until after it migrates, so it must travel a long distance with its old feathers.

Sleek and clean

Still seeing female hummers at the feeder, but the males have apparently headed south.
