Are your feeders ready?

The spring 2017 hummingbird migration is underway, and ruby-throated hummingbirds are on the move.

To help hummers, remember these tips:
– Always clean your feeder at least once a week.
-Skip the dye! Hummers can find your feeder without it.
– Don’t use honey or corn syrup; create a simple syrup solution by mixing 4 parts water to 1 part table sugar in a pan.
-Plant native nectar sources to help local hummingbirds.
