Is it too early for the hummers to arrive in NJ?

Red Throated Hummingbirds have been in NJ since early April. Do you have a feeder out? You can try putting something large and red in your yard to attract them to finding your feeder.

They've been in NJ since the end of March! One showed up on May 11th, and she's been here ever since. I'm in New Milford. And what a nasty girl she is; she won't allow another hummer even enter my garden! She'll be content on the feeder, then she darts off, and I watch her chase off the other(s). I haven't seen a male yet either. She's putting a damper on my viewing :(

I had one visit tonight! He perched on the shepherd's staff that the feeder hangs on. He stayed on there for a good 10 minutes, took a drink, and went home for the night :-)

Now I can start taking pictures!
