Are they scarce, or is it too early for the bulk of them? We've had a few, only 3 or 4.

We usually put the feeders out at the beginning of April. Due to the chilly weather this year we held off until the start of May and I just saw the first humming bird visiting the feeders yesterday.

We had one show up here in south central Wisconsin yesterday. Orioles, both Baltimore and orchard, rose breasted grosbeaks, yellow bellied sapsuckers and indigo buntings just arrived too and are busy at our feeders. Bluebirds have been nesting for a couple weeks. I think the dark eyed juncos finally have left.
