Happy to find this board! We "migrated" to the Sarasota area from Pennsylvania and I brought along my hummingbird feeder. I was just in PA and saw some hummingbirds. When would be a good time to put out my feeder here? I think we saw a hummingbird a few weeks ago, but I would think it's too hot to expect them to be in this area right now. Should I wait until December or January, or is there a chance they really are here and I'm just not attracting them with flowers or feeder nectar?
they r definately here.feeders have 2 b learned by them, alot of migrate birds will use them, because they are used 2 them up north. i have 9 ruby throats now, but i also have many plants. ive tried the feeder but they dont even look at it with so many plants. ruby throats are here from march 1 to november 1 then migrate to mexico to over winter, few stay and will definately need feeder because our plants dont bloom to much then.if i here from you i can tell u the best plants that will have u many hummers.
