after the last hummingbird leaves. when the weather turns cooler most hummingbirds head south. humming bird feeders can be used for many YEARS, as long as they don't have crax in them. change the syrup in them every 5 to 7 days. otherwise fermentation occurs. which is a type of alcohal. it is very bad for the hummingbids
