Noemi,
This has been my best year also! I live in suburb northeast of Houston, Texas. I have had a few hummers all year long and a few weeks ago....my population went to over 100. I suspect that the Texas drought and the fact that we are feeding them has helped out alot!

Noemi,

Based on a rather non-scientific assessment, I believe this southward migration so far is one of the strongest in recent memory. They come through here in waves.

Here at my place, we do not see enormous numbers, but it was very busy here all day. This may be the best year ever for you, but I believe there are a lot more to come.

Wow, very nice . I have to also say it is my best year ever. Did you know I just sent those hummers down to you.

I still have a few hummers here but not the big numbers I had a week ago.

Well this was my worst year EVER so I am hoping that some of those from the hoards of hummers everyone seems to be experiencing right now will find their way back to western NY and to my garden next spring

I feel bad writing this after Penny's response but I also had my best year ever. I had a lot of hummers around all summer. I didn't even get the typical drop in numbers that I've gotten other years in late May and June. I've lived at my house for 6 years now and the population of birds around here is increasing, possibly because of my gardens. The trees and shrubs I planted are also getting more mature which probably makes the habitat more suitable for them.
