Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

Ruby-Throat Hummingbirds Vol. IV

Central, AL(Zone 7b)

I'm among the very first to see R.T Hummingbirds migrated back North from their wintering home down South. Yesterday was my first sighting. I saw a male on my honeysuckle vines. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo for by the time I returned with a camera, he was gone. I didn't see one today, but I know more are coming.

I did put my nectar feeder up last several weeks anticipating their arrival, but like I stated above, the 1st arrival prefer the 'natural resources' of the honeysuckle blooms. There are other blooming flowers to welcome these beautiful birds back. So to all the hummingbird enthusiasts -- Please get ready to welcome their return.

We came from here, last year thread when the birds migrated North. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1212268/

Hi Lily, Congrats on seeing a hummer.

I'm confused though. There has already been a thread opened up by MajiA here. http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1248076/

Pelle, it's my confusion, not yours. Please pardon everyone. Let's stay with MajiA's lead. I'll continue to post my hummingbirds sighting over there.
