    I saw my first this past Saturday, March 29th, in SC. It was interesting that he came and hovered under where the feeder has hung for years before finding where I had moved it to this year. Wish my memory was that good.

    As you all know, the Anna’s stay year round with me. As of last week they are fending off a wave of Rufous Hummers that are heading north. my photo made it again for the fifth time now on the National Journey North. See link:

    Here’s the current map for Ruby-Throated Hummingbird sightings, as of April 2. Looks like the chilly weather is keeping these guys stuck in the south for now, but hopefully we’ll start to see some more northward movement soon. Keep giving us your updates, folks!

    First Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, two adult males, seen here today.  Had heard them several times over the last couple of weeks, but first time they had been seen.

    Here’s the latest map for Ruby-Throats as of April 11, via hummingbirds.net. (See it larger here.)

     

    My mom in northwest Ohio asked me today if she should put her feeders out yet, and I told her to go ahead, as long as she is careful to keep the sugar water fresh until the birds arrive. They say to hang them about 2 weeks before you usually expect to see them, but this winter and spring have been so strange that I won’t be surprised if they’re late in many places. Keep reporting those sightings!

    <p>My first ‘sighting’ of a ‘Ruby’, this year, at 3pm, today – in Central part of N.J.! I was ‘shaking like a leaf’, while taking video of him – He’s a Gorgeous/Beautiful Mature Male! I had a feeling today would be the day…I needed a ‘lift’, after hearing about Phoebe ‘Gone Missing’.</p>

    I went to that sight and could not post my sighting…I guess because my state isn’t listed. BUT,

    first sighting of male Rufous and male Ruby-throated hummingbird today at 1:14pm April 15th, 2014 in Nucla, that is southwestern Colorado.
