Worked for me. Thanks. I'll have to remember that for Spring. Doubt they are around, never see them, but who knows.

You're welcome, and I'd bet money they are around, and you're just not seeing them. Once they find your feeder, chances are they will return the next year to check it out. I normally put my feeders out the second week of April. This is when the migrants come thru heading further north. Also if you don't have any Salvia Greggii, it would be worth it to pick a few plants up. They will bloom right thru fall when the little ones need it most. Of course any annual nectar plants that fits your fancy is a plus also.

Haven't seen any in 6 days. Leaving the feeder up for another day since it's cold and snowy - just in case.
See you next spring!

Sounds like a plan. Stay warm Neditate.

Had one straggler that was still coming up to a few days ago. I will leave up 1 feeder for the next month for any hummers flying south that I may be on the flight path of.


Here's to a increase in hummers for us all next year!!!!

Probably a different species of hummingbird and a different location (Grand Junction, Co.) but around here the hummers generally disappear by mid September. A few years ago I kept my hummingbird feeder up well past that and had a hummingbird feed in early November. I called a naturalist friend of mine about it and the next day I was swarmed by Audubon folks carrying cameras with big lenses. I believe it would have been the latest sighting of a hummingbird in that area. But the bird did not return.

I was mistaken, I just saw a hummer try to come to the feeder, but by mistake, I scared her. Just washed put the feeders and refilled 3, to give her choices

I saw a hummer this morning at one of my feeders and about fell over. I haven't seen one in a couple of weeks now. I meant to take them down days ago and am now glad that I didn't.

Needless to say, they are now filled with new food.
