    Which area of So MD are you in? Have a feeder for the last few days but have not seen anyone return yet. I'm in La Plata.

    I don't have any here. Probably because I don't have feeders.

    Do any of you feel that you have fewer hummingbirds than normal this year? I only see one at the feeder occasionally. In years past there have been several buzzing about and chasing each other away. I know the bluebird population was decimated by the winter and I was wondering if a late frost hurt affected early arrivers?

    Can't really tell til mid-June. They always dribble in late April/early May, then most disappear for 3 to 4 weeks, then come back in droves early to mid June. Haven't noticed this spring being any different than years past.
