Where have all the hummingbirds gone?
In June 2019 , I had a male and female hummingbird at my feeder. Here it is July and once in a while I will see the male Ruby throated in my yard, but he doesnt feed. Whats going on? I live in Chicago. Last year they were all over. i make my own nectar and change it regularly.

I would suggest asking the Chicago Ornithological Society.

Sometimes in California the hummingbirds won’t use the feeders if there are enough flowers or insects to eat. If you want to attract more in the summer possibly a hummingbird bath/fountain would be great.

In addition to feeders, it would be a great idea to plant some flowers, and supply a water feature, as Zeke suggested.

I’m in a southwest suburb of Chicago and am experiencing the same thing as well as my sister who lives near Rockford. We have plenty of flowers in our garden that attract hummingbirds every season, but noticed in the last month that they stopped coming. We also have the sugar water feeders up for them, and they’re not coming to those either. My sister also noticed it’s been about a month they haven’t been coming by her either. What the heck is happening? Too much EMF radiation from 5G which was rolled out in the spring possibly having an effect on them. We’re also not seeing the usual amount of bumble bees, regular bees and wasps either.
