Hummingbirds a week earlier this year

I speculated on April 24th about when the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds might show up, in this part of Ontario, a few kilometres north of Toronto.   I mentioned that in 2010 and 2011 they had arrived in my King City backyard on May 10.
Well they were a full seven days earlier this year, when a male and female both arrived on May 3, much to my delight.   The next day there were four and now there are six competing for spots at the 10 nectar feeders.   The photo at right was taken Friday afternoon. 

Please comment if you wish.
