Hummers on the bay

I live in a salt water boating community just off the Gulf of Mexico in Bay St Louis, MS and my feeders are up, but with a very few hummers. Probably because we have very few blooming plants in my community because of the salt water. This weekend I was in Diamond Head, just to the north of the Bay of St Louis and hummers were everywhere I went where there were feeders or azalea's in bloom. I can say the migration in the US has begun. Get your feeders ready.

Yep Pappy
The first confirmed report was right there on the southwest corner of Alabama on Feb. 25th. If you look at the migration map on the main page of the forum you will see that they have filtered in all over the Gulf Coast.

Even with the maps it is always good to hear from someone who is seeing the masses point blank. That has to be exciting to be able to see so many hummers in one area.
