High Temperature: 86F
In our first few years here, I would hang 6 to 8 hummingbird feeders in various locations around the house and garden. They were all well-attended and I remember once counting twelve of the cursing and whirring beasts waging battle around one of the window feeders. We went through pounds of sugar between April and October, and I was refilling feeders as much every other day.
The numbers of hummingbirds have dwindled enough that I now start out with two feeders in April and then I wait to see if the population increases. Currently I have four feeders up and that seems to be the just right. Based on how quickly these voracious calorie-burners are draining the sugar water, there seems to be more hummingbirds than in past years.
Critter note: Another yearly visitor, this one-eyed Ornate Box Turtle comes into our barn every few days looking for shade and refreshment. We keep water out for him (her?) and hand feed him fresh strawberries and raspberries which he gobbles as best as his poor eyesight allows.
