Have Hummingbirds made their way to you? Update 5/15/2013
 
I got an e-mail from a friend who lives in Wisconsin and she's seen humminbirds already. We've had those cute visitors for the past 4-5 years, but they aren't here yet. Where are you? ... Have they arrived?

I'm in the SW corner of Ohio...and no, haven't seen any yet!

I live in central Missouri and we have had hummingbirds for about a month now.

Good for you! I just got an e-mail from a neighbor who just saw one at her feeder. I still haven't seen one at our yet.

A bit late to the party but I've been having hummingbirds and orioles all summer. I've watered down my nectar mix since I posted that because it's been so darn hot lately.

More information about homebrew nectar mixes in this post. Way more economical than the store-bought stuff and anyway Red Dye is bad news for hummers.

There seems to be fewer this year.

We finally have a few coming around. I planted hummingbird flower mix last year and they seem to love the flowers:)

Just had 3 show up in Tulsa Oklahoma-
 
Guess they decided they would like to have some 105 degree heat!

They are late here.

Wow that is hot!! We had one show up on a very hot day (for us) and after he had flitted around for awhile stopped by the pond on a cool rock to rest for about 10 minutes. Of course I didn't have my camera with me but I got to watch him:)

I buried my first humming bird this morning. She may have bumped into a window, because in death, she had her wings stretched out. I was very sad, and hope she didn't have babies waiting for her.

Since then, I've seen two other females at my feeder and one was at a sunflower head. The head is just enormous compared to the little bird.

I decided to bump this up from last year. Yesterday I did make hummingbird food and will put a feeder out today. It's early, but I am hoping.

How about it? Are there any hummingbird sightings at your garden yet?
