Default Hummingbirds No Show

We have had bunches of hummingbirds coming to our feeder every year but this year. Maybe this is an offyear for the little birds but we are not seeing any. Is anyone else seeing this?

Had lots every year but this one. This year zero. I also live in Pace. Dont know what is wrong. A lot of places in the Northern states are missing them also.

My guess would be the extreme drought conditions in Texas.

We put out 4 hummingbird feeders this year in hopes of attracting some. Very disappointed that we haven't seen a single one so far.

I had a few show up early this year. One older male chased them away and is still around. About 5 days ago another female showed up and is also hanging around. They're the only two I've seen for awhile. Very low numbers this year.

I've had 4 feeders out since early spring here in east Milton, I had two orthree regulars till May and then they disappeared. My regular group of about 12 don't show up until around mid-July at which time I put out all 8 feeders. Their arrival usually coincides with the blooming of the red cardinal flowers in our area. Be patient, they seem to peak in mid-August to early September.

I live here in the State of Washington hoping to move to Pensacola soon. However as to the humming birds. Here in Washington the birds did not fly south this year they stayed the whole winter. It snowed about three or four times and froze also. I felt sorry for the humming birds because they would set on the feeder in the snow and try to drink. I worried about them so we would melt the feeder in the morning and again before dark so they could have something to eat. Also this year we have twice as many humming birds than we usually have. Go figure.

I have them every year , LOTS of them as I have many Plants in my yard that they feed on ... I haven't seen ONE so far this season , and to my understanding , when you see one in your yard , they've most likely been there before ... they always come back to the same places every year ... in addition to all the plants I actually put out some feeders this Spring and nothing ... hope they make it
