Thank you Christine and SoCal, not sure where that male will eventually go, he's just a snowbird. I usually get a couple females in early spring that hang around for a few months.

Thank you for the new thread Sherri. Lovely pictures of your mail hummingbird and you never know he might hang around and make the acquaintance of those girls that you get.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown

I was just wondering when I should put my feeder out here in Northern VA. I hung one last year for the first time, but didn't put it out til later in the summer. I read I'm supposed to put it out before they show up.

Have you seen any of them yet, Bria? If so I would hang it then, but I really have no knowledge of Virginia so cannot help much.

I read online, for VA, mid April. But, you could do it start of April in case they're early. nodding

According to the Audubon site, you should expect hummingbirds to arrive in the northeast by late April.

Here in north Texas, there are usually sightings at the end of March but like clockwork, I will see them the first week of April. Smiling

Mine stay all year, but if yours are migratory, a feeder would make a great food stop for them...whether they stay or not.

I haven't seen my male now for a good two weeks, guess he's moved on. These were the last photos I got of him, would sit on that branch every night and watch the sunset. I usually have a couple females this time of year, but so far haven't seen them yet.

All these great photos are making me really antsy for spring to get here when I can start planting containers for the hummingbirds and the perennials start flowering. Right now I'm just at the indoor seed-starting stage with a little snow on the ground.

Well, mine arrive fairly late. I usually hang my feeders up mid April, but don't get my fist one until late June.
Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

I put mine out and so far actually saw one hummer on it.
