Here is the new map for the 2009 season.

Here is last years 2008 migration season map.

In checking last years map, I see they arrived here April 4th. It won't be long now.

Sue...putting up feeders soon

A sure sign of spring for me is when this map becomes available. Thanks, Sue.

I can't wait...I have my feeders sitting on the counter waiting to go and just ordered a new one.

It won't be long now as they are at the northern edge of TN.

I'd best be getting my feeders up.

So have they found 'your' feeder(s) yet? Though the very first sitings on the map in my area was March 26th, I did not see my first hummer at the feeder until yesterday.

Anyone else seeing them and seeing them regularly? Some years I tend to have more than others, though I never really have a lot like my neighbor. She has been feeding them several more years than I have and also has a pond nearby. I'm not sure if that maybe entices more to her house/feeders or not. Anyone know?

Nice feeder Ronnie!
