Hummingbirds also have been out and about this spring. More of them will be seen once they’re finished nesting and expand their feeding range about the end of July, but they still feed during the summer. Make a nectar of 1 part sugar and 4 parts water, and keep the nectar fresh by changing it every two to three days. Don’t add food coloring. Putting up more than one feeder will attract more birds.
I’ve been seeing warblers in my yard this spring, which has also been good for seeing summer tanagers and scarlet tanagers, Clausen says. Purple martins started nesting about two weeks later than usual.
