My first male of the season showed up at the feeders today. By my calculations of the last several years he’s about four days early. Most years it’s +|_ May 12 before our first males show up. The females usually show up about a week later

Never sure whether these first Hummers are resident birds, or just passing through on their way to Washington County and eastward to New Brunswick. I’m just happy to have them back. My last sighting of the fall was September 15, so it’s nice to have them back

I got my first male in Topsham today. My feeder went out last Friday. I always look for the first purple blossom beginning to show on the PJM rhodies. Nice to have them back.

Almost always on mothers day at my home. They will be here Saturday or Sunday

Yeah.....I hear you, Steve. Mother’s Day is usual here, too. I’m thinking that male the other day was a transient headed either toward Washington County or downward to New Brunswick. I haven’t seen him since then. A couple more days and the resident males should show. Another 10 days or so for the females

First one here in Rangeley Plantation was yesterday 5/9. Seemed a day or so early. Some sheets of ice still on Mooselookmeguntic, should be gone today 5/10.

My first female showed up at the feeders this morning. That’s way early. I’m guessing she’s headed Downeast, and not a resident bird. Nice to see her back, though. The males were buzzing the feeders yesterday. I’m guessing those are resident birds.

PS: It would be nice if the rivers would recede back down so we could actually wade in and fish. I’m usually fishing by May 10th. Not this year, apparently. My “go to” places are still running from two to six times wadeable flows.

Resident females showed up today 5/18/19. Already three pairs at the feeders. About a week to 10 days behind the resident males, and right on schedule. All is right with the world......at least bird wise.

Not really sure what is going to happen with hummingbird feeders this summer. Emily had a pair of bears visit the other night. They got a thistle feeder that left the gold finches flummoxed. She is worried for the phoebe's that are trying again to nest in Ursala's garage. And this will be the heavy year for the pear tree. Going to be interesting going forward.
