We have an embarrassment of riches it seems. While we too have noticed fewer hummers than some years, we've had ten to fifteen of them most days this week. More females than males allow them to actually drink (rather than fight for the places at the feeder) so along with the riches we have the expense of lots of sugar. It's worth it!

Tonight and two evenings ago we have seen a hummer displaying.

Was surprised to see some posts that the hummers are back.
Ours hadn't left.

This is the first summer we've seen 3 on the feeder at once.
They've been great fun to watch!
