Default Hummingbirds returning

We have been seeing a couple of humming birds at the feeders already. Noticed the first one over the week end. So, if you like watching them it's time to get those feeders out. Seems early to me, but the azaleas and some other flowering plants are already showing off around here.

My wife loves em and prides herself on making the best juice mix around. We noticed the first one of spring today at the feeder. I wish I still had the video of a september day 2 years ago when they were on their way south. I bet it was 40 of em swarming the feeder. Pretty cool little critters.

I’m in south GA, but we had our first about 3 weeks ago. They seemed to take up residence this week though. Heard the first hooded warbler this year on Tuesday.

Default Hummers

First one arrived today. According to our calendar, he landed one day later than the first arrival last year. Like to watch the little guys. Sometimes 200 at a time buzzing the 10 feeders. Keep telling my wife the ATF guys may show up any day looking for a "still" because she buys so much sugar.

I think she just uses warm water and a bunch of sugar. In her mind it's something special ha. Soon itll be time for the migraters to come back through.
