The Hummers are Here!


I mentioned a couple of days ago that I put up my hummingbird feeder last week and have had them at my feeder everyday. I found a pretty cool website where you see them migrating back for the summer. It's the Spring 2008 Migration of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds at http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html

The picture at the left is not one that I took. I am still trying to get a picture with my camera.

I really need to get my feeder out. If you are getting them I should be also.

Ok..soon as I got off here this morning I made up the solution and filled the feeder. When I got home from church dh was very happy to announce our first hummer already paid a visit to the feeder! Need to get more sugar and prepare the other feeders. When they get thick we usually have hummingbird wars around the deck.

i live in da UP and i am going to put my feeders out this week...it snowed yesterday! today it got into the high 40s but with the wind howling who knows how cold it is. i did sit outside watching the other birds for a couple hours today all bundled up. finally i just couldnt take it anymore, my feet are still cold. i want to plant my rose bushes ( i always plant in 5 gal planters, even in hawaii...that way i will be able to bring them inside in the fall). i really love it here, it is so different than living in the tropics but there are so many more birds and animals.

Hi Tammy, I just put my feeder out this past week end. I thought I heard them out there last week and sure enough they were. I know they have been around in the valley for a while but up here on the mountain we have the same temps as you folks in the mid west.

I love the Hummers.... they are a hoot to watch.
