While the weather has been so bad west of you, many eastern birds have been piling up in your area. Here in Texas, we haven't seen anything but rain crows. ;) Soon, things will go back to normal.
Also remember that this is the peak of the RT hummer migration, which is why several hummingbird festivals in Texas are right now.
And males of many species migrate well before females and immatures, so you aren't seeing as many of the guys. They came through in my Galveston yard in late summer.
Thanks for caring about the birds.

We have a large Bottlebrush which is conveniently in heavy bloom. For the past three or four days we have had as many as eight hummers working the bush at the same time. We also have some shrimp plants and other hummingbird friendly plants. Never had numbers like this before, usually just two or three, so I put up three feeders to supplement the natural food. Look like they are all Ruby throats, almost all are female. One actually came up to Janet on the porch, where she was leaning on the railing and tried to feed through the fingers of her clasped hands.
They are putting on quite a show, less of the territoriality than I would expect to see.
We are over in the Sawdust community near Greensboro, FL.
