Put feeders up by mid-April,(Tax Day!) to attract early migrants–a week or two later in the northern U.S. and Canada, a week or two earlier along the Gulf Coast (see average arrival dates at Migration Map). http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html
DON’T wait until you see your first Ruby-throated Hummingbird of the spring, which may be well after the first ones arrive.
Be safe, be clean, be responsible:
Don’t add red food coloring to attract the hummingbirds. Food coloring is not good for them and it’s not necessary. A red feeder is enough to attract hummingbirds. Tie a red ribbon on your feeder if it is not red.
Over time, heat will cause the sugar in the hummingbird formula to ferment and eventually mold will grow in the nectar. Mold will also grow on your feeder. Changing the nectar regularly will prevent this from happening. Every time you change the hummingbird food, wash out your feeder with plain hot water.
