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.

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 have been trying to find you

Here you are enquiring about Hummingbirds

If you get this email would you please email back to me.

One of my favourite plants is the Voodoolily Do you have it

As well I love the Brugmansia plant and grow a number of them.
Notice that it is a favourite of yours as well

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.

I put some feeder information on "My Page" if anybody is interested.
