Hi everyone. I live in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Does anyone know when they start coming around? I'm not sure when to put out my feeders. Thanks!

They are probably already in your area so I would go ahead and put them out now.

Thanks Cindi. I'll put them out now. Do they stay around here all summer?

Hi Mike. I hope they come. It's my mission this summer to get some hummers. I tried last year but didn't see any. Hopefully I'll have better luck this year. :)
Thanks...Lori

Hi, I'm in Hamilton. I put some feeder information on my member page that might be useful too. The hummingbirds have been in Ontario since mid-April.

I have two in my yard as of May 15th! We just moved to the area (Kemptville) and I'd heard they're visitors, so I put out my feeders on the 6th (or thereabouts). I see the male and female a few times an evening when I look out the window. They buzzed me last night as I was covering my annuals.

What amazing birds!

I have some salvia seeds for those of you in Canada. Send me an email if you'd like to try growing them. There's still enough time.

I've had my feeders out for 2-3 weeks now in SC, and they take a couple of days to locate them.
But once they do!!
Keep fresh nectar in the feeders, as it tends to get rancid.
I see them mostly after daylight, and an hour or so befor dark.
