Very few last year and only one so far this year and she was here about 3 weeks ago for a few days and then left.

I have had my feeder out for about 3 weeks also and I have not seen any either. Maybe the weather has them messed up with it being such a mil winter and all.

I wonder why the numbers are diminishing like this ?
At the rate we are going,extinction could be not to far away!We haven't seen any at all this year.

I live at southside and I saw one today so maybe they are just late coming in for the year...Glad to see the one, hopefully more to follow.

We've seen our first one yesterday. We have noticed that the deer are not at our place as usual either. We usually have about 8-11 feeding in our yard and we haven't had any. Also, we are having mice and rats in our house, shop and even in the engine of my car. Very strange. Anyone else seeing strange occurrences in the wildlife in this area?

we didn't have much of a winter this year-that might be the problem with the wildlife

I would swear I saw 3 or 4 different kinds when I was at The Lake of The Ozarks Memorial Day Weekend...

They have moved into my area now, I have two feeders and have had to fill both of them up 3 times now. So they may have just been slow coming in. They sure are pretty little creatures to watch.

Yes there is a marked reduction in hummingbirds this year.
