Hummers! They are back and hungry!

They have been a source of almost constant amusement the past couple of days. I know I have at least three since I've seen that many at once. But I suspect more...

Awesome pictures!! Our hummers are hungry also. I put out a couple of my feeders this weekend and it was definitely appreciated!

Congratulations on yourhummers!! I am still waiting for any to show at my feeders. My neighbor across the street has seen some several times already. I am beginning to think they are going to pass me by. :( Has anyone out there had that happen?

Ours seem to have disappeared. I suspect they were just travelers passing through.

More should be along soon.

Same thing with mine. There were hummers at the feeders for about a week and now they seemed to have moved on.

WE have had literally dozens of them since the first of April... I have 4 feeders going and got 3 more to put out as soon as I can figure out where to hang them...

We had Baltimore Orioles for several weeks and now they have left, and we still have one pair of Orchard Orioles...

Lots of Bird action in the old Cottage Garden this year.

By now, I would normally have a few hummers. But I haven't seen one in weeks now. Is anybody else seeing hummers?

We still have several but not as many as there were early on.
