I live in Catonsville and have had hummingbirds for years. I have hardly seen ANY this year. Put my feeders out in May when I spotted a hummer where I put the feeders. Have not seen any for weeks. Do you know if there is a problem?

We have no information concerning a widespread problem with hummingbird migrations this year. We have observed, however, that we have experienced a late spring and this could result in a slower migration northward as the birds follow their normal route and are forced to linger along the route as their food sources develop.
