The countdown is on in my backyard in King City, north of Toronto, for the arrival of the first Ruby-throated Hummingbirds of the season.   The remarkably warm weather during much of March pushed the migration north earlier than usual, but more recent cool weather has kept the 'hummers' stalled in northern U.S. states like Vermont, Pennsylvannia, Ohio and Illinois.   Because of that early warm weather, I feel like I have been waiting forever for the return of the hummingbirds.   Oh well, three more weeks is a short enough time for such a splendid reward.
