This is my first post. We had hummingbirds last year from spring until the time you take the feeders down in the fall. Where are they this year? We live in North Aurora, IL.

RE: Hummingbirds IL?

Thanks for writing, Coolaces! Well, you were right! This morning we saw our firt hummingbird of the season! I took the downstairs feeder in to clean it the day before (we have another one upstairs off of our balcony) and this morning, my husband spotted one feeding on our fuschia plant, which is on the same hook as the feeder normally is! I was so excited! I ran outside when he was finished to hang up the feeder, hoping he'd come back. I waited awhile and sure enough, he (she?) came back to eat from the feeder!!! Have you had any luck since you wrote?
