I agree with Veronica 100%. I pray that isn't why I haven't been seeing them in San Diego. I was figuring it was because of the cold weather. I have four feeders out there. besides all of my flowering plants. Thanks Julie

I love hummingbirds! We have Ruby-throated ones here in Nova Scotia and they usually return on Mother's Day!
