The best time to put out a hummingbird feeder is after the season’s first frosts. Hummingbirds don’t migrate until late March or early April, and then they travel thousands of miles to their summer homes in Mexico and Central America. When the weather gets cold, they all head south for warm temperatures. That’s why putting your feeder down during this season lets you take advantage of natural migration patterns without having to worry about freezing birds! After that point it can get so hot outside that nectar isn’t as effective for them as it is now—they’ll just leave again until fall, when all those migrating birds will return with full stomachs and ready to feast on an abundance of food sources.
How many times per day should I refill my hummingbird feeder?
Hummingbirds move around quite a bit: They may fly from one flower patch directly over your yard into another; they may hover right above your yard before swooping down at speed; sometimes they might even fly straight up like missiles towards the sky! Because of these rapid movements within such small spaces (which are often difficult for us humans to comprehend), we recommend refilling your hummingbird feeders every three hours or so (depending upon how much food you’re giving them). If this means more frequent visits by hungry little friends, we think it’s well worth it!
