I was looking for them but so far, haven't seen one.
They love one of the weedier Corydalis species so I haven't ripped out the extras. Aesculus pavia is in bud and when it's open they should have returned. I filled their feeder thinking I might see one on a rainy day.

I haven't seen any either Coralbells, lonicera sempervirens (cedar lane and Alabama crimson) are blooming. Several native azaleas, aesculus pavia too. Also carolina jessamine bleeding hearts bearded irisis a couple of different phlox that I don't know the name of are all blooming The flowering quince is almost finished blooming. But no hummers that I know of. Last year I saw my first April 27th! none yet this year. Sarah

No sign of hummers here either. We put feeders up several weeks ago, just in case, but so far, nothing. It's pretty amazing how quickly hummers find feeders; several years we set out the feeders in, oh, mid-May, and within minutes, literally, hummers would be on them.

I saw my first ones on Thursday. They were flying up to my windows. This might be a dumb question but do the same ones come back year after year? They would always fly up to my living room windows last year when the feeder was empty. I haven't had a chance to put my feeder out yet and everyday since Thursday I have seen them flying around my windows.Just wondering.
