A first hummingbird?

I'm so jealous of my fellow butterfly (and wildlife) gardening enthusiasts and friends in Six Mile, SC.

They've now seen two (!) male ruby-throated hummingbirds, one yesterday, and one today.

I know from the migration maps on Journey North and Hummingbird.net that there have been sightings of first hummingbirds (through today) here in the eastern U.S. as far north as Delaware, Connecticut, and Massachusetts (and in the Central U.S as far as Michigan). But I haven't seen one yet. Hhmrrph.

There are feeders waiting, not to mention coral honeysuckle in full bloom and Eastern columbines, but they'll come. And hopefully, one will attract a female to stick around.

  1. Thanks for the reminder, I do need to check the Hummingbird map. Like the Lonicera-- sempervirens?


I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
