The hummers love it.  But you have to make sure it doesn't ferment!  Had one little guy drink & drink.  All of the sudden his head falls over to the right.  He popped back up in a minute or so and did it all over again!  Took me a few to realize that the nectar had fermented and he was drunk!

It's a little early to prepare for hummers but you never know with the crazy weather.
They have started the migration, here is a great map that is updated daily-

I used to have hummingbird feeders.  I felt like I was chumming for my cats so I took them down.  They never actually got one, but it was close a few times.  I didn't know cats could jump that high straight up!

I have hummingbirds 9-10 months of the year. Why they leave in Feb I have no idea. Of course, this is California. . .
