Hummers arrive on May 10th - (3 of last 4 years)
It had been raining most of the day today and it was chilly (16C), but at 4.40 p.m. the first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of the season showed up at a feeder, just outside the kitchen window.   May 10 has been 'Hummer-day' for three out of the past four years (2010, 2011 and 2013).   May 3 was the 2012 arrival date.   The weather forecast for the next few days indicates a challenge for hummingbirds with cold temperatures and even a bit of snow in the forecast!
