Perhaps they are on their way to warm areas. I know I'm seeing quite a few the last couple of days.
I don't know what part of Canada you are from and what the temps are up there but I'm in the mid-80sF

In southern California, I read about one of the hummers that it breed early in the year in the lowland and thereafter it migrated to the mountains when flowers became rare low and more common high (all of this from some time ago, so I hope I am remembering correctly). Therefore where are you, in an area that dries out and loses its flowers?

A location would be very helpful for context but in general, it often happens that during the breeding season (late May-June) Hummingbirds will stop visiting one's feeders, or at least decrease in numbers.
