While it might not feel like spring right now, it's certainly on the way, and with it comes warmer temperatures, outdoor fun, and hummingbirds. Any day now we'll be seeing hummingbirds back in Oklahoma.


These tiny and beautiful birds are heading our way during their annual spring migration and will spend the majority of their time right here in the Sooner State throughout the spring and summer months.

Any day now we should start seeing hummingbirds back in the Sooner State

While there are a great many different species of hummingbirds in the U.S. the Red-Throated hummingbird is the most common here in Oklahoma. Named after its signature dark red throat and white band under its beak. Now is the time to prepare for their arrival and start getting your feeders ready.


We should start seeing them in late March, early April sometime, maybe even sooner. I've been lucky that for whatever reason hummingbirds love my backyard, it helps that I have a honeysuckle bush and other flowers and bushes they seem to enjoy. I still put out feeders and birdbaths to attract them.

Watch the video below for tips on how to feed and care for Oklahoma hummingbirds

If you're wanting to have hummingbirds visit the yard having multiple feeders helps. For being so tiny these birds are very territorial and will attack and fight each other over food sources. So the more feeders and flowering plants you have the better. That way there's enough to go around and then some.


You'll definitely want to keep your feeders clean and change out the sugar water often. Otherwise, it could possibly harm the birds or even kill them if you aren't careful. Only use water and table sugar, don't use any dyes or honey in your feeders. Mix 4 parts water to 1 part sugar for the best results.

You should change out your sugar water every 3 days or when you start to see that it's getting cloudy or yellowed. Watch the videos above for all the details on feeders and the proper way to mix up sugar water and cleaning/maintenance. I'm looking forward to seeing them in the backyard again!


Over the next couple of weeks, we should start seeing hummingbirds back in Oklahoma. I actually saw one a few days ago in my backyard hanging out around the honeysuckle bush. So this weekend I plan to get all my feeders cleaned up and ready for the season. Now's the time to get ready, they're on the way.
