Alan’s Answers: How Do I Get My Feeders Ready for the Hummingbirds?

The first migrating ruby-throated hummingbirds have arrived in Texas, slightly ahead of schedule.

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.
