In Middle Georgia, during the months of May and June we see very few hummingbirds feeding at our feeders. We feel fortunate to see one or two at a time visiting our feeders at this time of the year. Those that see three or four feel extremely fortunate.
In 1997, a number of individuals reported seeing significantly more hummers in late May through early June. Theas quickly as the birds appeared they vanished long before backyard hummingbird populations explode after July 4. This phenomenon has continued to some extent each year since. However, nothing compared to what has happened in our backyard this year.
