When your first hummingbird arrives does he go straight to the location of last year’s feeder? If so, chances are the bird will have been a visitor or resident in previous years. Hummingbird bander Fred Bassett has found a bird at the same residence in Alabama for 9 years in a row!
“My resident male ruby throated hummingbird came home today. He was sitting on the wires near his feeder out front. The other two hummers we saw earlier were migrating further north. Now it’s time to look for the female. She should be here by the end of this week,” shared Cathy in Grafton, Ohio on May Day.
