At approximately 8:15 EST, about spilled my coffee on my keyboard as I jumped up and RAN into the kitchen to whip up some nectar...then I had to scrounge around in the garage to find the feeders and clean them out....

I hope he will be persistent and come back around!!!

YEAH!!!! such an exciting moment....

RE: Saw my first Hummer this morning

I saw my first hummer (the Black Chinned Hummingbird) on 2 April. I had five feeders out on the porch and where was the bird, yep, out in the wildflower garden sipping on the Indian Paintbrush. But who cares, they're back for another season. Hoooo-Raaayyy!!

RE: Saw my first Hummer this morning

I got my first ones at the house last week and just saw one fly in the bay doors here at the shop. Now I gotta put a feeder here and plant something for them, lol.

RE: Saw my first Hummer this morning

I put out 3 feeders 4 days ago. Just saw the first hummer today. In fact, I just HAD to run inside and find a thread to mention it on!

I see all the early sightings on the migration site and it drives me crazy waiting for them to show up here! Sometimes, I suspect that all those early sitings are of doomed hummers, migrating too early... :(
