Hang those hummingbird feeders outside
Now is the time to hang hummingbird feeders.
Hummingbirds are often seen in Oklahoma in early April.
“It's fairly simple to attract hummers to your backyard,” said Rachel Bradley, wildlife diversity specialist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
“Hummingbirds take to sugar water mixtures (one part sugar to four parts water) in a hummingbird feeder and bright tubular plants such as trumpet creeper vines and petunias.”
