I have gone from curious to somewhat concerned to very worried about the disappearance of all hummingbird activity around my place in southeastern Potter Valley.
I have fed nectar here for 44 years and might as well throw away my mixing jug.
I have had no use of my feeders and no sighting of any kind of hummer for at least a month.
I thought to begin with the early blossoming of shrubs and trees was providing a natural alternative to sugar water, but daily scoping of every one of them has turned up nothing.
I hope to hear that this is not continuing to be widespread.
