The calendar below is our newest hummingbird creation. This Flowers that attract hummingbirds calendar has photos of some of our favorite hummingbird attracting flowers that we have had in our own garden. Each month has a picture of a flower that has worked great for us. The back of the calendar describes what each month’s flower is. We also have started a Flowers that attract hummingbirds page on our flower web site that gives you more information about these flowers. We will continue adding more flowers to that page as time goes on. Thanks for reading.
Our first hummingbird sighting of 2022 is in the photo below. We put up our feeder on Sunday, May 1st. This is a week or two later than we usually do because our weather has been bad. Well, it took less than 24 hours for us to have our first hummingbird sighting of 2022. We saw our first hummingbird Monday morning and have seen them every day since.
Recently we created our newest hummingbird photo gallery at Pictorem This newest created photo gallery also contains photographs of floral, landscape and nature photography.
From what we see they appear to be a first class, high quality operation. The photo galleries we created there really do a great job in presenting our photographs. There are many options as to how you can have your prints processed and shipping is free in the United States and Canada.
So, if you have any interest in our new photo gallery click on this link: Purplebears Photography at Pictorem

Our first hummingbird sighting of 2021 was in the third week of April. That’s within a week of when our first sighting usually is. The first hummingbird we saw was a male ruby-throat and about a week and a half later we saw our first female ruby-throat hummingbird. This also is how it usually happens for us.

We had a lot of activity for 2 or 3 weeks and then it dropped off in visits when the hummingbirds started nesting. After the nesting time was over our hummingbird visits picked up. All of the hummingbird sightings stopped in the third week of September. This happens every year like clockwork. One thing that was different this year from other years was our hummingbirds didn’t go to our plants very often. They just went to the feeder and then left quickly. We figure the problem might have been a neighbor close by had put up a bird feeder that attracted a whole lot of sparrows. The sparrows chase after the hummingbirds. That may have been why they weren’t spending much time at our plants. Hopefully, it will be better next year.

The 2021 hummingbird migration is almost here! For all of us hummingbird enthusiasts, the migration is the most anticipated time all winter long. We’ll start watching the progress on the migration maps in early March to see where they are. We usually put our first feeder up sometime around April 15th, depending on the weather and their progress on the migration map. Male ruby-throated hummingbirds show up first and the females follow one to three weeks later. This is what happens at least where we live in the suburbs of Philadelphia. We hang our feeder from a roof pent by our front door so we can look at it each time we walk past the door. It’s pretty exciting for us each year when we spot our first hummingbird.
