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.

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.

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.

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

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