    Good to know, thanks!

    I have been a little worried about them over the last week or so. We saw a few of them arrive (Mid-April) on schedule. We only get about 3 or 4 that show up. But over the last week or so I have not seen them. I don't recall them disappearing like Grumpy points out, but I hope that is what it is and they come back.

    I'm happy to report that our hummingbirds are showing up again at the feeders. I've seen them both in the Dunkirk area and in Port Tobacco.

    We had the hummingbirds in late May this year, still coming around, we have feeders and honeysuckle in the yard. Plenty of Blue Jays too. We're in Leonardtown.

    Has anyone seen any hummingbirds yet this year? I have feeders out in Owings and in Port Tobacco. So far - nothing.

    I was just thinking that myself. Was going to put the feeders out today anyway.

    Haven't seen any yet out here, but then again for some reason there aren't any leaves on the trees either.

    Do you ever see (or hear) any bob whites up where you live?
