Hummingbird arrival

We saw our first hummingbird a little over two weeks ago.  This week we have seen at least two males and at least one female.   Let the fun begin!  We love watching the hummers.  We currently have an opening for the last weekend in May.  Check our calendar using this link:

Hummingbirds return

We just put the hummingbird feeders out today and we have seen at least one male.  In the past couple of years we put them out earlier and never saw until early May, so we were surprised to see one so quickly.
