Get Your Hummingbird Feeders Out!

I haven't seen any hummingbirds around yet, but according to this handy-dandy map, ruby throated hummingbirds have been in the area for a month already.

Last year, I didn't see any at my feeder until late June, but they were regular visitors after that . . .

Well, I've seen them. I had barely set some flowers out on the deck when I heard a very loud buzzing and there she was, inches away from me. She's been back since, absolutely loving my mandavilla.

Me too. I planted something purple and stalky (don't you love my master gardener type terms) and was out weeding and one flew inches away from me. I swear, she was looking at me.

Spyder put one up in the yard and we've seen some over the last couple weekends. Zippy little things.

"Mistress" told us of this website back one night while sitting with goblets of wine and a roaring pinon fire in the chiminea. We were grateful and the hummers graced our patio the entire year. Now, we are in Denver and the map cuts us off about the middle of Kansas (appropro I suppose)......any ideas?????

Hello, Coloradogal!

It looks like Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds don't like the mountains, but there are several species that share your love of thin air. Check out this site - no cool maps but lots of info.

BTW, I'll be talking about you this afternoon . . .

I know that there is hummningbirds in Colorado. I was in Sedalia, Co., just south of Denver, when I was buzzed by the little hummers.
