I live in central Texas and they'll be here anyday now. Some years they stay all winter. I haven't seen any this year though.

Still waiting for the hummingbirds in my section of NC. Have spotted a bluebird tho it might be a scout.
When do your hummingbirds come in your state?

I just found this team today and am so excited! I just put two of my feeders out this weekend, but haven't seen any hummers yet. My other feeders are swamped though so it shouldn't be long.

I used to feed the humming birds, but I have stopped. For some reason they would always go into our garage and then get stuck! I have spent many days with my husband and my boys trying to coax them out! We even had to bring a feeder in the garage because one was in there for 6 hours and was getting too weak to fly and I was so afraid it would not make it. After finding one dead that had gotten stuck in the garage overnight I stopped feeding them outside. It has been 4 years since i stopped feeding them , they will still come buzz the front windows, like they are asking where there food went. I would love to feed them again, but we live with the garage doors open all summer. I have never figured out what they love so much in there, but all the birds seem to find it attractive.

I find it very peaceful watching the birds flutter about and wish I had more hummers about...what is your favorite flower or bush that attracts them. I am looking for something that won't wilt in the Virginia summer heat

Easter is coming up soon. Also SPRING. Before we know it will be time to dust off those Hummingbirds feeders. Start checking them-just might want to check out new items at your favorite Lowes/BigLot store. I bought one for the color but not crazy on how to loaded with fluid

As long as I keep my feeders filled, I always have birds in the yard. Mostly sparrows but I do get cardinels, house finch, chickadees and occasional goldfinch (but not very often), morning doves, blue jays and in the cooler months the dark-eyed juncos and of course those pesky starlings.

I wish I could get titmouse and blue birds in my yard but no such luck.

I have two hummingbird feeders but only got 2 hummers this summer. Sad, really, because I used to get quite a few. We thoroughly enjoyed watching them fight over the feeders. I’m keeping the feeders out through winter as long as I can in case they stop by while migrating through.

I too love the little hummers. I have a pair that come every year. they are the cutest birds.
I had a lot of goldfinches this year. I also have the bluejays,they are bringing their fledglings to eat in our yard. They are alot of fun to watch.
I know fall is coming the titmouses and chickadees are back.
Have a great day.

My backyard has been very busy this week. My cardinals ( he and she ) have returned and my blue jays have been busy flinging seed everywhere.
My big thrill came tonight, when about 7:00 I looked out and saw a beautiful hummingbird hovering in my firebush. He/she stayed for quiet awhile. I watch it drink, then go sit in my laurel oak tree, then drink then sit. It was a good sized hummer.I hope to see it again tomorrow!!!! Also, the butterflies have been unbelievable! It's been a great summer.
