I saw my first Hummer Sunday afternoon.It was around the wisteria and then hovered over the feeder.Then in a flash it was gone.:)
 
I actually had a visit from one on Friday afternoon. I always hang feeders around the deck and as lazy as I am just had not gotten them out yet. Well I got buzzed and then he came and looked me in the eye as if to say "i'm here already , feed me" So I immediately went and got my feeders and put them out. Maybe he will thank me with some good pictures this year.
 
I put up my feeders today, I checked on the hummer migration site and they have been spotted in PA and I don't want to miss them. They are so fun to have around and the kitties get great enjoyment from them too.

So the starved to death little thing left Fl and came AL.I was proud to have it visit but must have left me too.
 
I have had several sporatic hummers coming to drink the nectar. Today one was supping quite awhile.
 
I saw my first one this year today. I had feeders out but he went to the empty one and them just flew of. i haven't seen him since.
 
We always get hummers at work about 2 weeks before I get them here at the house. So far no hummers at work
 
He came back for his dinner, in-between snacks and supper. He has gone to bed now. Maybe there will be more visitors tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Can you post the link to the site. I would love to check it out
 
Hang on, let me find it. If you go to hummingbirdmigration.net it will bring up their home page and then you can look at the maps.
 
Also, journeynorth.org will send you many updates on migration of all kinds of things from monarchs to all different kinds of birds.
 
Those are great sites. Thanks for sharing. My favorite is the journeynorth.org.

we still have to wait for a while before we see them this far north, I think its still to cold for them here in New England, I'll wait for them, I'll be putting up feeders this week end just in case the show up early.
