Jeanette Lang passed along the hummingbird migration link, and it shows an early advance of the hummers that seems astonishing to me. For example, the first hummingbird of the season was reported today … in the Upper Peninsula. There also have been scattered sighting as far north as central Wisconsin and southern Minnesota. I don’t think the old rule about waiting until Mother’s Day to put out hummingbird feeders in Duluth is going to work this year.
You can see for yourself, and check as often as you like, here:
I didn’t see any hummingbirds during a road trip today, but I thought I saw a red-winged blackbird. It was in a marshy area off Highway 2 just north of Proctor.
