I just had my fist male Ruby for the season this afternoon. Used the feeder as well as the goldflame honeysuckle.

That's great news Mimi. Congratulations to you and enjoy your hummer season.

I have a few blooming plants, salvias and a coral honeysuckly, but the hummers here seem to just want the feeders. It's guick energy for their trip north and east from here.

I just saw my first hummer of the season. So happy that I had put the feeders up about a week ago because not too much is blooming here now.

I have been looking for your report Dianne and wondering where your hummers were.

We got our first one (or possibly two) today. My 86 year old mom usually takes a full hour to get up, dressed, and to the breakfast table. When I woke her this morning I told her I'd just seen a hummer. She was up, dressed, and into the sunroom in under 20 minutes!

Yea, sighted my first hummer this afternoon,about 5 sips. Last year was March 26th. I moved in October, so I was anxious to see if any hummers would show up here. I have a blooming fucshia and salvia. I have two window feeders, so I am excited to watch my hummer feed up close!
