Many birds have come and gone through Marion County in the past couple of weeks but there are some that still remain. Along with several different species, Hummingbirds are still here and they continue to come from the north. Marion County Naturalist Marla Mertz tells KNIA/KRLS News that it is important to keep feeding them so that they have enough strength to make it to the south before winter. The Hummingbirds will be traveling across the Gulf of Mexico into South America.
