Get Your Feeders Ready for Hummingbirds

hummingbirdsThe first migrating ruby-throated hummingbirds have arrived in Texas.

Now is the time to get your hummingbird feeders ready for spring! First, check your feeder for any broken parts. Next, wash your feeders in a water and bleach solution and rinse well. Make sure you test the feeder for any leaks, fill it up and hang it for a bit to see if the water holds.

When you are ready, remember a simple solution works best. 1 part white granulated sugar to 4 parts water.
