I had feeders in the Piedmont of South Carolina; I marked their arrival and departure each year, as well as their activities in the garden. Hawking from the big oak near the porch was a favorite observation point.
Blogger's search feature picked up lots of hummingbird posts on Natural Gardening: fun to revisit.
We had hummingbirds visiting our feeders in Quebec in June and July - the Gaspe Peninsula is about as far north as they get in Eastern North America.
Journey North's map today showing the southern migration sightings were telling, as was their post.
Hummingbirds are heading south rapidly. We've been seeing two or three everyday here in Asheville, visiting Saliva guaranitica and Lobelia siphilitica, both still in full flower.
