Where are the hummingbirds...


Have had our feeder out since April and nothing. BS Gal had a thread in April that she had some.

Where are they? :shrug:

There were a few here, then, as Catt said, they went away to mate. I have seen one in the past week, but he hasn't been frequenting the feeder a lot.


They show up, sparsely, in April/May then go off to mate. They'll be back mid-June or so.
Good to know. I saw one a few weeks ago but nothing now. I even made a great hummingbird oasis and have been so dissapointed that there haven't been any around.

To my untrained eye I started out with three of them for a good two weeks and now I'm only seeing one. I thought they were here to mate so it's nice to know they probably went off to do the deed and will probably be back later.


happy to be living
They better be back after their mating fun...we have a lot of flowers planted this year for their pleasure....and ours for watching them!


..if momma ain't happy...
Three hummers are having a great time fighting over the two feeders I have this evening!

(They REALLY don't like to share :killingme )

I have one that comes every morning around 5:30 and since I'm gone the rest of the day I don't know if I get many more.
