Is It Time to Put Out Hummingbird Feeders?

Now that it is officially considered to be spring, at least according to the calender, you would not believe how many times in the past few weeks I have been asked “is it time to put out our hummingbird feeders yet?” Even though it is indeed spring, it has not felt much like spring here in southeast Texas. Regardless, of what the current temperature outside may actually feel like, it is now spring so that is why today’s post will discuss when it is time to put out your hummingbird feeders.

It is impossible to offer you an exact date on which you should put up your hummingbird feeders. While this may sound quite obvious, your feeders should be put up in time for their arrival. Which means that the date on which your feeders should be put up will vary greatly depending upon where you are located.

You will want to know the average date the hummingbirds tend to arrive in your specific area, because you will want to get your feeder up 5-10 days prior to the average date of their arrival in your area. If you are new to birdwatching or you just do not know when that usually occurs, I would suggest that you consult with other birdwatching enthusiast you may know or even your local Audubon Society.

Where I live, in southeast Texas, the first hummingbirds usually arrive around the last week in March and the middle of April. As a result, my mom would often hang her feeders around the time of her birthday, March 30. She did so as away of helping her remember when to do so. While everyone’s situation is unique, it is often good to have something that will help us remember when it is that we want to hang our hummingbird feeders.

You may be wondering why it is important to get your feeders up prior to the average date of the hummingbird’s arrival? Doing this will help increase the possibility that the hummingbird will spot your feeder up and stop by for a drink and therefore begin to realize that your backyard is a great hummingbird haven and thereby entice the birds to possibly stay for the season in your backyard!
