The hummingbird hit a window I think and I believe the moth died of old age.

The moth is survived by a whole bunch caterpillars from eggs that were probably laid here and there while migrating north.

We can hope that Mr. Hummingbird had no family. Otherwise there will be some fatherless hummingbirds and we have all read the statistics on single parent families. Sure it can work but its not ideal.

Maybe the month and hummingbird were an item. I've heard, once one mate dies the other is not long for this world.
