Hummingbirds are coming!



Believe it or not, hummingbirds have already started arriving in the southern part of the U.S. Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have been spotted in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas, so time to get the hummingbird feeders up in those areas. If you're in the snowy northern parts of the country, it seems like a long time before hummingbirds will be enthralling you. These photos may help you dream about it. You can track their progress and see other people's spring hummer sightings on this fun website, go here:

Such pretty shots! I can't wait!
Since I'm freezing here in NH I have quite the ways to go before I see those beauties in person!

Although I've never commented, I enjoy your blogs immensely. Thanks especially for the link to the hummingbird tracker. I'll keep an eye on it so I'll know when to put out the feeders.

Who knows? I might be one of the first reporters in western NC.

Hearing about the Hummingbirds moving north is probably one of the best things I have heard in a long time! I just can't wait for their arrival!
