Hummingbird Update

Here we are on July 1st - arguably the very center of hummingbird season in the Piedmont.  And I am not seeing hummers.  I am outdoors every bit as much as I was a year ago, and am surely not less observant.  Hence either I am just plain unlucky and miss their current territorial circuits or they're somehow not visible, either because of attractions elsewhere or casualties.  I do expect to see more of them as the summer mounts as that has always been the pattern.  But I am more than a little curious why things changed so much over a year.  I'll keep watching.  The answer may soon come!
