Ah, there you are ! We were "talking" about the spring migration in chat last night. CW already has some spring migrants but here on the east coast the weather has been terrible up until yesterday. Anyway, that is when I remembered the hummingbird map. They are only three or four weeks away!

I am so excited for the hummingbirds to come back! :)
I see they are almost in Indiana/Ohio.... I live in Northern Michigan so hopefully they will be here soon. I usually don't get them until the 1st week of May. I think I am going to put my feeders out this weekend and hope they come early :D

I see RT Hummingbirds are already in Rhode Island - a full two weeks ahead of last year. None here yet but I think I'll put up the feeders this weekend.

They are almost here according to the map. They are also very much ahead...it even looks like they are in the very southern tip of Canada which surprises me. That's like 3-4 weeks ahead! I normally don't see them until the first week of May. I hope those little buggers will be okay... we are expecting 6 inches of snow tonight here!
