I live in Kansas. We’ll have days that get up to 70, but they’re one at a time right now and will be followed by 50s or 40s.

As soon as it starts to get and stay warm a bit. you ll want it in place just before flowers start blooming. And keep fresh if you don t already . GL

As soon as the weather starts staying in the 70s. Also hang some hummingbird nests along with planted flowers that hummingbirds love. And always remember to keep the feeders fresh.

As early as January depending on the climant and definitely on into Spring. They’re already stirring around some garden plants as we speak. As a matter of fact I saw one just this morning… such cute little things — unlike the Raccoon that I saw in my yard last night.

I am in the mid-Atlantic and they say out by March 17th and down by Halloween or whenever the temps are 55 or above overnight. Hummingbirds are territorial so the same little guys should be coming to your feeders each year. It pays to be consistent and get them out when the temps are good.
