My First Hummingbird Sighting

I have just seen a hummingbird in my garden for the first time. It happened yesterday, June 8th at around 6:40 p.m. I was sitting on my porch when i noticed some motion down by my shed. I saw it feeding on the coral honeysuckle down there. It only stayed there for a few seconds and then took off. I sure hope it comes back.

Good for you. Certainly coral honeysuckle is one of their favorites in my yard. You may need more of their favs to keep them coming back and a feeder or two.

RE: My First Hummingbird Sighting

That's great! It's also quite encouraging to hear. I'm also in PA, near Reading. I'm still waiting on my first visitor. I have four coral honeysuckles (2 are just babies though). I hope they find mine too.

I hope your visitor comes back....with friends!

RE: My First Hummingbird Sighting

I'm in Eastern Pa, near Allentown. Right now I don't have any typical hummer-attracting plants blooming, but I do have a feeder set up and have had some activity there for nearly a month now. it was more sporadic, but this week I've seen one there at least once a day. (I posted a picture of him a few minutes ago in a new thread).

I hope yours sticks around! :)


RE: My First Hummingbird Sighting

Congrats! Hope you see it again.
Coral honeysuckle is a good choice. It blooms such a long time. If you have room for more, they're pretty easy to root.
