When should I hang my hummingbird feeders?

This question is complex and deserves a longer answer. If you want to see our map of when to hang your hummingbird feeder, click here! For the initiated, here is a simplified answer. If you live in the desert southwest or along Pacific Coast, you may have the luxury of experiencing hummingbirds year-round. However, for those who experience harsh winters, hummingbirds bless our feeders for only a few months each year. If you live on the Gulf or Pacific Coast, you are likely to have hummingbirds most of the year. If you live in the central areas of the United States, your hummingbirds may not arrive until the end of April or even early May. While unfair, we only provide the dates of hummingbird arrivals. We do not get to decide when they show up!
