Early Blooming – When To Put Out Hummingbird Feeders

Q: Given how very early things are blooming this year, when do you think hummingbird feeders should be put out?

A: Many birders keep at least one hummingbird feeder out all year long. Ruby-throat hummers arrive in spring and depart in fall but other species migrate through Georgia in winter. The good folks at Georgia Hummers (georgiahummers.org) report at least a dozen species have been recorded here.
