We are in upstate NY and so far have seen zilch - zero - nada on the Hummers! We have a very large garden and (I'd say) 75% is Hummer friendly. Quite a bit of salvia is open, feeders are all out, fushia hanging, etc. Last year we had quite a few Hummers. So am hoping that they will all return this year. My bee balm is growing like crazy so maybe once they bloom, that will help.
Last year we also had Baltimore Orioles (male, female & finally a baby). This year..... nothing!
You're so right ~ VERY disappointing!
On a brighter note, we have had 2 Robins nesting. One set just flew the coup and I anticipate that the others will be leaving me shortly. Ma & Pa have been feeding them like crazy and fattening them up for their journey outta here. Once they leave, I'm really going to feel like an "empty nester."
