    Wow Float On......that is a bit early for hummers! I live in central Indiana I usually see them the first week of May.

    Tybee......thanks, I'll look into that. That would be cool to hear that others have seen something, so I would be more on the lookout. What part of the country do you live in? It must be north or Canada. I would DIE if I saw a snowy owl!!
    I haven't even seen any barn owls. My friend in southern Illinois put up a barn owl house last spring and got a nesting pair that had babies!

    Greg.........sorry I never answered your question about the kinds of birds around here, so here goes:

    cardinals
    doves
    chickadees (black capped and Carolina)
    Wrens (Carolina and House)
    nuthatches
    woodpeckers - downy, red headed, flickers, pileateds, sap suckers, red-bellied, Hairys
    cuckoos
    meadowlarks
    woodcocks
    phoebes
    Great crested flycatchers
    kingbirds
    pewees
    brown creepers
    juncos
    ruby throated hummers
    blue-gray gnatcatchers
    Northern parulas
    robins
    trushes
    waxwings
    veeries
    thrasher
    thrushes.
    Indigo buntings
    all different sparrows
    bluebirds
    scarlet tanager
    turkey vultures
    great horned and barred owls
    Oh.....and I can't forget robins.
    Okay.........you get the idea. haha I could go on and on. I love migration time, but last year, there didn't seem to be any. I'll keep my fingers crossed for this year being better.

    It's all new to us since we moved north so I will have to relearn the birds for this area. Yesterday, I saw my first ever northern flicker. I do miss seeing mockingbirds and cardinals though.

    Cathy, we live in Northern Michigan. I know it's a lot warmer in Indiana; my son lives in southern INdiana and they barely get snow!

    I saw a hummingbird outside my window a month or so ago. A friend was kept busy thawing out her feeders during our cold spell to keep hers fed. Apparently, some don't migrate.

    I have my Hummingbird and Oriole feeders up, frozen today in MI, but ready for the scouts when they arrive!

    Lucky us...we have Annas hummers year-round. The rufous are here now.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Now that it is late spring, my feeders are so busy. We have an assortment of Woodpeckers, Hairy, Downey,RedBellied, Flickers, Oriole are back and hoping they are nesting out back, the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds are back in full force. I thought the neighborhood Foxes took out the Chipmunks but nope more than we possibly need. Fox we only had occasionally seen them in our country sub, this year we have two litters and they are very brave. I walked my 80 pound mutt and the mom Fox paced us the other day, growing the entire time. First I was amused then I got a bit bothered as I did not want that confrontation. Nature is wonderful.
