Hummingbirds Return Early

I spotted the first hummingbird of the year yesterday evening. A beautiful male with a bright, bright red throat. It was a short sighting, I noticed something floating next to the ferns that hang on the porch. There is a bird’s nest in one, so I’m used to seeing things flutter around. But this was different. I hurried to the window, and low and behold, there he was feeding on the daffodils. It’s earlier than normal; usually I don’t see the first one for another week or so. But now I’ll be keeping an even more keen eye out for them.
