Any hummingbirds yet?

Have any of you spotted any hummingbirds yet? They should be appearing pretty soon. I look forward to seeing them zipping around the garden.

I have tons of birds, but no hummingbirds. I have kept the feeder attached to my kitchen window for years. When they come back, they usually come to the window and hover there for a few seconds...it's like they are telling me, "Hey lady. Where's our food?"

I saw one yesterday (I live in Stone Mountain near Tucker) seeking nectar from the flowers of my ornamental cabbages. It was a shock to see it buzzing about, I normally don't see any hummingbirds till June at the earliest. I don't think it was a ruby throat though. Of course I immediately put out my hummingbird feeders in case any more show up.

So is it safe to assume we should go ahead and put out the feeders with the sugar solution?

I live near Savannah, and have not seen any hummingbirds yet. I put my feeder up March 1. They are later arriving this year. Last year the first one arrived the middle of February.

Thanks much, Chezron, for the link to the migration map. I've already sent it on to others nearby.

One thing I get so tickled about is reactions to the little darlings. All talk stops when one is spotted.

I have not seen any yet but I have just put out my feeders. I could not get them as clean as I would like so I am going to buy new ones today. I buy the cheap plastic ones because my hummers prefer them to the beautiful glass ones. I even exchanged the plastic and glass positions to get them to drink from the glass ones. No luck; they found the plastic ones and continued to ignore the glass ones.
