Despite the Cold the Hummingbirds are Coming!!!

It is funny how Hummingbirds know when to leave their winter area and migrate north. They don't leave the same time every year, some years are early, some later. This year is about average time despite that the North East is still cold. I can't wait for them to get here but in reality, I am glad they are not here yet. It is still below freezing at nights and only a couple of days ago it snowed. There isn't much in the way of 'natural' food for them although I am starting to notice some bugs flying around outside. There are no flowers at all as 'green' is just popping through the soil which means Hummingbird Feeders are very important to sustain them until they can find their own food. I will be putting mine up mid-week since they are in VA as of yesterday. They were spotted in the Norfolk area and as far north as Temperanceville area. So it won't be long now until...
