Wonderful to see the Hummingbirds return once again, almost on the same day or days, every Spring- May 7-8-9. Not very many flowers in bloom in early May, but the Black & Bloom Salvia flowers then , and still continuing now. ( This was taken on June 14).

How lovely to see your little hummers return and nectaring on those beautiful blue flowers. A pleasure to see, Paul.

Great feeding behavior image.
Checked the University Arboretum a few times but now Hummingbirds so far.
One showed up at our feeder but only once.
