When should I stop feeding?
Ruby-throated hummingbirds arrive in early April and head south by mid October. They eat small insects for protein and fiber and drink flower nectar for energy. You can supplement using a hummingbird feeder with clear (not red) sugar water: four parts water to one part sugar boiled into simple syrup. Change the nectar twice a week so it isn't fermented. Feed for two weeks after you've seen your last hummer. Enjoy! They're so much fun.
