Let the migration map suggest when to hang your feeder. The 2011 map project will start in the last week of February.

I can't believe another migration season is upon us...so hard to believe when it is so cold and snowy here in NY. We already had RWBlackbirds....so it is starting!!

I'm still waiting to see my first red-winged blackbird of the season. It can't be much longer! Spring is almost here!

I'm so happy for you...and for them.

...I'm happy for me too, 'cause this morning a whole flock of red-winged blackbirds descended on our feeder...and the seed I sprinkled on top of the snow--yes, snow...hey, I got a day off from school (work), so I won't complain.

After I saw the migration map I immediately put up one feeder. They are up in Ohio and other points north of us now so I thought I should. I haven't seen any yet this year but I don't want them to starve if and when they arrive. I can always make more nectar if they don't for awhile.

Saw my first hummingbird at the feeder today! I'm so glad I put it up. It's a male, perhaps migrating further north. I'll keep an eye out to see if he stays and is joined by a female.

If he is, send him up my way.

I decided to join Journey North so I can record my sightings. It's a great way to track migrations.

Cool. Hopefully, when they arrive up my way, I'll join too.
