You are so lucky. We had 15 cm of snow today

We do have a lot of beautiful deers who practically live in our yard, but they destroy their fair share of plants and trees every year, so it's a wash.

They are surprisingly shiny. Do they sing? (I've never seen one in real life).

I never know when to put my feeder up. We don't see a lot of hummingbirds but we have seen a few over the years.

Right! When I was looking them up last year I came across a blogpost with someone being abel to catch and pet one without problems. At least that one wasn't scared of people's at all.

Steve, we got our first hb today! We're in western MT. It zipped fast when we weren't paying attention, so not sure what it was. We put the feeders up this eve, maybe we'll know tomorrow. But it's supposed to rain and I'm gone next week so maybe not

SaltedFig, hummingbirds don't sing. They mostly chirp, and they can also make trill noises with their tails. They're very cool to watch -- hope you get to some day! What part of the world are you in that you haven't already?
