I want to feed hummingbirds. Did I miss out on feeding them this season?
Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds settle into their territories from May to June and appreciate a reliable backup feeder to feed at while they also forage for flower nectar and bugs.
Then in late June newly fledged hummers have to check out
everything to see if it's food, so you may catch them with new feeders. And starting in the middle of July males begin to wander widely, and some
are already heading south. So, before you know it you'll have hungry
southbound migrants to feed!
Migration continues through the middle of October so there are plenty of opportunities to see hummers feeding. The migration south
is a more leisurely trip than the race north. So you may see these new
hummers at your feeder for a couple weeks before they catch a good wind
to move further south.
