this little guy came by about 530 and just left! The pictures aren't too great since my windows need cleaning (and I took it with my cell phone).

Hi Jennifer.
i have had a feeder out for about three weeks now but I haven't spotted one yet. now it has turned cold again so I guess they will stay where it is a little warmer for a while. I am looking forward to having them again.

My Mid-South Gardening guide says for us to put feeders out in March. As cold as it is - I can't imagine them being here this early.

Bonnie, I keep my feeders out year-round. My first hummer came in January. This year Ruby-throated, Calliope and Rufous hummers were seen here during the winter months. And, if I don't get any hummers, the woodpeckers are very grateful for the little snack!

I just hung this hummingbird's feeder out yesterday. Jennifer congrats on your sighting. Kim those birds are really tough! They travel a long way during migration seasons! Tough as nail too, dispite how fragile they look. Not to mention they're just so pretty. I haven't seen one here yet. Most often I don't see them in the garden until my red honeysuckles bloom in the backyard.

I have 4 feeders out. The last went out today, and is a suction cupped window feeder. As SOON as I put it out, it had a hummer at it! I didn't even get inside. He flew away pretty quickly, but at least he knows where it is.
