Yesterday I asked if anyone north of here (Morehead City-Beaufort) has any hummingbirds now (other than the ones we know about at Mattamuskeet and Buxton), or for any reports of hummers after the cold.
Only Bruce Smithson of Wilmington replied. Is no one else replying because they don't have any hummingbirds now?
Last night I talked to four different individuals/couples (all live in or just outside of Morehead) who had hummers before and into the cold (one had 3 or 4 birds), and none of them have any hummers now.
In Carteret County, I have heard of hummers at five residences, including mine, all singles, except for one double.
