Spring is here in New York and the birds are chirping but there are some birds that are missing right now. Where are the hummingbirds?

Right now, the hummingbirds are in the south and are making their move up north for the Spring and Summer. According to the website hummingbirdcentral.com, the hummingbirds are currently mainly in the South and along the East Coast.

Historically, hummingbirds make their way back to New York by Mother's day and stay in the area until around Labor Day. If you are looking to attach the hummingbirds to your yard, you can start putting out your hummingbird feeders in late April or in early May.

The Ruby-Throated Hummingbird is the most common in the Eastern Part of the United States and the ones you will find across New York State.

They eat nectar and are green and red-colored. Feeders and flower gardens are great ways to attract these birds.  If you want to make your own nectar it is pretty simple.

To make the sugar water mixture, take about one-quarter cup of sugar per cup of water. Table sugar is the best choice for the nectar.  You also want to make sure you change the water before it grows cloudy or discolored and remembers that during hot weather, sugar water ferments rapidly to produce toxic alcohol.
