My hummingbirds have been slow and sporadic coming in this year. They seem to come and leave with a thunderstorm. I am normally feeding almost 2 gallons of sugar water each day by this time. I am presently feeding almost a gallon a day. I couldn't get a lot of them in the photos but I hoped you would enjoy what I did get in case you don't have them where you are. I will keep trying as time goes.

I I am in West TN and have noticed that our Hummingbirds have not shown up yet this year. I am usually filling our feeders every other day because we have so many.

Wow! You are feeding a lot of 'em! That is great. Have you ever found a hummingbird nest?

I love hummingbirds but have seen very few this year. They must all be at your house!

The hummingbirds are here, in Rhode Island. I have never had so many. I love watching them. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us.
