RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRDS ARE BACK!

T.W. Johnson

I spotted my first rubythroat on the evening of March 18. Remarkably, my wife saw our first hummer in 2015 at our Forsyth home on the same date.

Friends that live nearby Lizella reported seeing their first hummingbird Thursday, March 17. This is the same date that a lady in Americus saw her first ruby-throated of the spring.

As usual, friends that live in the Southwest Georgia city of Colquitt spotted their first rubythroat long before one was seen in Middle Georgia. A male rubythroat visited a feeder in their backyard March 5.

If have not seen your first ruby-throated hummingbird of the spring yet, you should see one any day now.
