My orioles showed up yesterday. They must travel in flocks because I, all of a sudden, had five at one time.
I have seen no hummingbirds.

Q.
Why do Hummingbirds hum?

A.
They don't know the words.

My feeders are out. Have had orioles in them but I haven't seen a hummingbird. My wife thought she saw one yesterday on some of the flowers.

We just got orioles at our hummingbird feeders yesterday. No hummingbirds yet. Not sure of this cold front that came through will keep them south. Supposed to be frosty here the next several days.

Reminds me to change out the water in the feeders today. We've had hummingbirds for a while now. Remember to keep fresh stuff in your feeders so they dont get sick!

None at my feeders but neighbors a few miles south of me have had them for about a week now.
