Within half an hour, I'd made a batch of food and had my feeders out. My little guy has been happily coming all day. Soon more males will arrive, and in a week or so, they'll be joined by the females. Pretty soon, it'll be hummingbirds with love on their minds diving and swooping everywhere. Can't wait.
I've had an pair of Eastern Bluebirds hanging around my bird boxes, but it's too soon to tell if they'll be nesting here or not.
For those of you who aren't lucky enough to live in Vermont...
