    Have you seen any yet? We've had our feeders up for a month already, just in case! Just changed the food again this morning.

    No sign yet. But we're keeping fresh sugar water out, too.

    We ended up having a lot of hummingbirds this summer. Have not seen them in a couple of fays. Maybe the headed south early this year.

    I've seen this in Los Angeles. Hummingbirds are bad-tempered, badass little critters.

    Learned today from Kim at Broadway Books here in Portland that hummingbirds who live near hawks fearlessly go after the hawks, buzzing them and complaining at them, and in general telling them to stay the hell away.

    I don't know about humming birds and hawks but I wish you could see the eagles and crows fighting at my house!
