The Hummers Are Coming!
link, sent to me by Liz G. It will take you to a map where dots mark first sightings of returning hummers. (As of Sunday night there had been a sighting in northern Louisiana.) The sightings are emailed in -- reported by folks like you and me.
The map is only for the Ruby-Throated's range (online it extends into Canada.) But the site is full of pictures and lots of good information about humming birds in their many varieties.
Personally, I find it fascinating to watch the dots creep northward.
Full disclosure: These humming bird pictures aren't mine -- my friend Vic made them last year on our front porch with his super-duper camera.
Thanks, Liz, for the link!
