It's OK that is the way we learn.

I've had my feeder up about a week, in Savannah, and one hummer is a regular visiter.

Good news! My DD is going to help me look at our storage unit to see if my feeders are there tomorrow.

YAY! Just saw our first hummingbird of the season (mountains of Colorado).
I put a feeder out this am. Two days ago we got a foot of snow and temps were in the single digits. Yesterday the high was 30. I had a feeling today could be the day since we were supposed to be in the 40s.

Dang. I still have not seen a single hummer. I don't know what the problem is, I have fresh nectar and had plenty of birds last year!

And apparently other people in Louisiana have them.

Our first ones arrived at the beginning of the month but they were so quick to come and go we missed them more than saw them. Only in the last few days have they been more visible. Hang in there they will be there! Amazingly the various sighting maps show that they've made to Maine and southern Canada! Hummingbird Migration Maps

Well the ones in Maine must of bypassed Indiana. No seriously this is a new spot for the hummers I knew it would take a bit to see them. Put up a new feeder tonight too.

Hmmm, no butterflies or hummingbirds yet her ein SE Pa. Although we did have the first tree swallows scoping out a nest box in the backyard for a few days. I haven't seen them now for 2 days.
