The hummers are short here too.  One lady who normally feeds 2 gallons per
day to her normal hundreds of birds, is now only feeding 5 gallons per week.
She says the large number appeared as usual this spring but many of them are
now gone.  Also, a number of people have told me they are not getting
hummers to their feeders.
