First hummingbird back on Sunday, May 8

Linda woke me early Saturday morning to announce the first hummingbird of the year was in the backyard.   I've had the nectar feeders filled up for a few days in anticipation of the arrival of these springtime charmers.   Last year the first 'hummer' showed up on May 6.   They normally arrive between May 3 and 10.   I have not got a photo of the 2016 one yet, but will have soon.   In the meantime, I've included some shots from previous years as a preview.   Hope you enjoy...

Please comment if you wish.
