I feed Humming Birds all year round. My question is during these hot dry months what do they eat when there are not any feeders? All local flowers and flowering weeds have long dryed out and died.


They come just after the spring flowers and stay with us until their food sources dry up. This is nature's signal to them that it is time to move on to a different climate., (South for the winter.)
They go to the tree tops and to the feeders of compassionate friends until cooler nights, shorter days and the last fall flowers signal it is time to go. (The birds that stop by your feeders on these evenings, probably are clutching little suitcases with their tiny feet.) Time to care enough to let them go be with their friends

How hi should a humming bird feeder be?


Hi Andrew.
Hang the feeder approximately 5 feet above the ground, Make sure there is no foliage underneath that would encourage unwelcome guests, like mice, squirrels and even cats, to feed on the sugar water. If you wish to hang multiple hummingbird feeders, locate the feeders at least 10 to 12 feet apart.2.

When to feed hummingbirds in New Hampshire


I lived in NH & VT for 20yrs, and only fed them in Spring & Summer. They have a reeeally long flight south in the Fall, so continuing to feed them is not beneficial to them. We can help encourage them to get on their way before the temps drop. And they have little to no body fat to protect them from the cold. I feed them 1 part sugar mixed with 4 parts water. Also, cleaning the sticky feeder with hot water, weekly, is helpful. Happy birding!

Should I change my birdfeeder food between summer and winter?


In the winter months there are no insects for birds to eat, so it is more important that they have an abundance of food in the feeder. As for what kinds of food, it can be the same seeds that you offer the birds in the summer.

What kind of seed should I put in my bird feeder?


1) Different birds like different kinds of seeds. For example, almost all birds enjoy sunflower seeds. Other popular seeds include safflower, corn, Millet, Milo, Nyjer and Suet. If you know of a certain species of bird that lives near you, you can check the chart on this website to see what seeds that bird enjoys.
