I always have a bunch of Hummingbird feeds out to watch these wonderful little creatures!!. Well, I looked at a Hummingbird MIGRATION map this weekend and saw there had already been some Hummer sightings in the Ma. area. I Put the feeders out yesterday and saw my first hummer of the season this morning!!! I wasn't fast enough to get a picture of this Male Rubythroat Hummer. I'll attach one the first chance I get to capture a picture. A SURE SIGN OF AN EARLY SPRING/ STRIPER SEASON!! (I HOPE)

Need to do a good cleaning of my feeders,

Just soap and water???

I would just soak them in hot water.

I've read in a number of places to never use anything but just water to clean feeders. The hummers are very sensitive to soap and cleaning products. I just wipe them down with water and I have gotten some small brushes from Amazon made just for cleaning the opening on Flowers on Hummingbird feeders.

I'm in Blackstone MA and have been visited a few times already. Got a super cool slow mo vid ( I had to lay on the floor of my porch to get it) Going to see if I can figure how to get it off my phone to here.

I usually wait til May 1st to hang my feeders. If others are seeing early arrivals, I might as well start the beaked bumble season today!

Mine seem like they need more to clean them.

Stock GIF, looks like a hand/ring set up though. I wouldn't mind trying one myself.

Everytime I try to upload the file from my phone it says there was a problem. Is there a better way to do it? The vid is 40 seconds long.
