Fall Hummingbird Feeders
When asked if it would be okay to take down the hummingbirds for the year one of our local bird experts, Robert Ostrowski, replied with this:
No, leave them up! Even though our only native hummingbird, the Ruby-throated, has left our area by the end of September, it's still possible to see stragglers and even western strays. If there are any hummingbirds around, they are finding it increasingly difficult to find natural nectar sources, so feeders could be their only option. Feeders won't deter a bird from migrating when it should, but they may increase its chance of survival if it should happen to find itself in Maine in October or later. So keep your feeders clean and full and let someone know if you see any hummingbirds - it very well could be a species rare to Maine.
