Questions and Answers about Wild Birds

Question of the week:

Q. When should I stop feeding hummingbirds in the fall?  I have heard that if I feed too late in the year the hummingbirds will delay their southward migration. Is this true?

A.  We suggest keeping your feeders up for two to three weeks past the time of the last observed hummingbird.  More and more hummingbirds are overwintering in the United States.  If you are in a southern state try leaving your feeder up all winter.
