When to put out hummingbird feeders.

What time do you put out and take in your hummingbird feeders?

Jefferson, this site has days that hummers were seen: http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html
May give you some idea. And I would probably put mine up a week or two early.

Mine stays out year round, as we have hummingbirds year round, in the desert Southwest.

They are starting to appear down south this week so I'd get your feeders out shortly

I haven't seen any yet but I heard rumors of some being spotted about 30 minutes south of us, so I went ahead and put one of mine out today... this is honestly my first year putting them out so we'll see what happens.

Same here in the Pac Nw. We have year round Anna's and the Rufous have just recently returned. I can't keep the feeders filled!
