Ruby-throat migration has begun!

Check out the migration map. They are here! You can start counting the days until they reach your house. Apparently they are a little early this year.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

That's great news!!! Last year, a pair arrived here in WTN on Mar 31, which is about a week earlier than average. Another 4 weeks, maybe...

Yippeee. We are still under 2 feet of snow here in West Michigan so tell them not to hurry. I usually don't get them 'till the end of April and even then there is not really much natural food for them. Glad I came and checked in. I will be on the lookout for early arrivals and be ready with my feeders.

I'm waiting with excitement too. They should arrive in SW Chester County, PA, between the last few days in March and the second week in April. I'll have the nectar feeder filled for them the last week of March. Maybe a pair will nest here this year.

Is it possible that they arrive to NC? Today I heard a buzz and saw something fly away very fast. I'm not sure what it was. I wonder if I should put my feeders up.

Glad I checked in...just realized I need to get my feeders up too! My first came mid March last year so I better hurry...by July and August, I have literally hundreds and spend each day cleaning and refilling feeders but it is SO worth it!!

There's nothing like seeing that first hummer of the season...can't wait!...thanks for the reminder..

Esrungg! Where in West Mi are you? I am in Blue Lake just North of Muskegon. Kind of where Muskegon, Oceana and Newago counties all come together.

Esrungg, Greenville is pretty darn close, I have one person I have met on the Blue Bird forum that is in Sand Lake.....even closer to you I think. I have Family in Greenville with the last name of Krenz..(x inlaws, but still loved). :) No hummers here yet thank goodness although we are starting to thaw out!
