Hummingbirds Are Here!

Get out your hummingbird feeders! Ruby-throated Hummingbirds have arrived and been seen as far north as NH, where we live, also ME, VT, NY, MI, MN and WI. The word on the street is that hummingbirds have migrated early this year.
Fill feeders with a nectar solution of one part white table sugar, to four parts water. Boil for a minute to disolve the sugar, cool, fill feeders. Clean and refill feeders ever 2-3 days in hot weather.

It's June 13 here in South Eastern Indiana. The Hummingbirds got here early May. Problem is only a handfull came in! I'm talking I had 1(possibly 2), and after talking to several neighbors I knew none of them had over 4.
Where are they? Anyone know? First bee's,now these precious bird's?
What next?

I have a hummingbird that I just saw tonight for about 2 seconds but I have never seen one like this before. It was dark with bright orange on the shoulder. Any Idea what kind it is?
