First hummingbird feeder up and first hummingbird sighting for 2016

dish type feeder

We put our first hummingbird feeder up on Wednesday afternoon, April 20th and had our first hummingbird sighting for 2016 a week later on the 27th at about 6:30 that evening. It was a male ruby throated hummingbird.

April 27th is probably one of the earliest dates that we’ve seen our first hummingbird. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any since. Reason may be that the weather hasn’t been very nice for hummingbirds. It’s been cold and wet.

Hopefully, we’ll get some pictures soon so we can make our first pictures of 2016 post.
