It's not too late to enjoy hummingbirds in your DC, MD, VA backyards or balconies this summer. Don't be afraid that if you feed them late into the season, they will delay their migration south. This just won't happen. In fact, you can feed hummingbirds as long as they keep coming by to eat. These little birds have such a strong biological clock that nothing will allow them to delay their long flight home when the time has come to do so.

4 Parts Water
