The little guys should be in my area soon. Got my feeders out of storage yesterday but a thunderstorm kept me from putting them outside. I have alot of them buzzing around, that is, when I don't let the feeders run out of food.

Anybody have any sightings they'd like to share?

There's still a bit of snow here [fence lines and in the bush... not to mention off-and-on flurries today] so I trust the birdbrains know what they're doing and will appear in due course. 

But I can share that the crows and robins have been back for a couple of weeks and in areas not too far south of us apparently the crocusses/crocii/??? are blooming.  yes

I used to have hummers come back every spring. So far this spring, I haven't seen a one. Maybe I just haven't been out when they were buzzing around. Guess I'd better start looking a little more.

We've been away for a few days >> our neighbor reports the hummers showed up on the weekend >> first pot of sugar:water is on the stove.   Pretty much on-time according to ^^ interactive.

Usually see one or two around tax day but not this year, so far. I put my feeder out around that date but no customers so far. Plan to bring it back, rewash and refill and hopefully soon. I usually see them once the spring flowers bloom begins to fade a bit and my sugar water is a bit more appealing. Do enjoy feeding and watching them, so hopefully soon.

Normally She sets out the humming bird and oriole feeders about the time that storks show up but storks were a bit early this year but now both the humming bird and orioles are at the feeders and if I sit quietly on the deck I get to relax and watch the birds at the feeders.

Seems like we have them almost all the time here in Florida.

I don't pay much attention to them, as it would take quite a mess of them to make a proper supper.

Our hummingbirds came back to the western slope of Colorado two weeks ago. Our feeder was out when they arrived and we have refilled it already ... (thirsty buggers)

I've had the feeders out for a while now and saw my first one a few weeks ago. As of yesterday, there are now alot of them coming to feed.

Now if I can get the robins from terrorizing my house trying to make nests everywhere.

The Orioles typically show up here some time after the hummers [we also rely on our neighbor for the specifics] but they only seem to be passing through, so if the feeder isn't ready ... ?!!?   

A few years back I picked up a burned one of these bad boys at the dump [the rake head, NOT the bird] ... I had initially figured I might use it as a rack for tarp straps in the shop, but somehow I never got around to it ..... after seeing this, I might just go directly to plan "B."
