When should I start and stop feeding hummingbirds?
Early May is a good time to hang up your hummingbird feeders. In the South, migratory hummingbirds begin tapping sugar-water feeders in backyards in early April. Don't be in a hurry to take them down in fall. There's a myth that if you leave your sugar-water feeders up, then the hummingbirds won't migrate. This isn't true. Don't be afraid to leave your feeders up through migration season. This way, you'll catch any late travelers as they fly through your area.
