DOES ANYONE IN DA U.P. HAVE HUMMINGBIRDS YET???? We've NEVER had them be this late in arriving!!! According to the migration map they HAVE made it as far as the Marquette area and even over by the Soo. But we haven't seen a one yet!
We do have our usual ONE rose breasted grosbeak and there is an abundance of blue jays this year. Others have commented about how many jays there are (the robins won't stand a chance raising any babies with all the darn jays). We've seen up to 7 evening grosbeaks at one time (that is low too). And one lone cardinal flew by the other day and haven't seen him since, but we have never seen a cardinal here before. I think the darn cowbirds are as plentiful as the blue jays.
Tomorrow is the day for the caravan of RV's to arrive. At least it isn't supposed to be snowing sideways this year when they get here!
It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. We finally got some rain yesterday afternoon and into the evening. It has been so darn cold though...well, it feels cold to me...highs in the mid 50's. That's about right for this time of year, but I guess I DID get spoiled on temps by not being here this winter!
Let me know about the hummers, eh?
