Hummingbirds in New Hampshire

Submitted by karenique31 on Tue, 06/20/2017 - 14:46
For the past several years we have had hummingbirds at our feeder and among our flowers. This year we have not seen a single one. We are wondering if there could be a reason for this, or are they just not visiting us this year. I read once that hummingbirds remember where they feed, and will return to that spot year after year.
