Would sugar water left over from October that has been refrigerated still be good?

I would pitch it and start over. Sugar is cheap enough.

According to the map, they are here in NE Tenn, but I have not seen any yet. I am ready to go, but since the nights are still freezing around here, I have been leary about filling the feeders. Nothing like having a frost broken feeder to replace on limited income.

Welcome back my little fine feathered friends.

4/16-saw my first ruby throated male hummer today feeding at the feeder. I filled it and about 20 minutes later there he was! Butterflys AND Hummers in the same week! It don't get any better than this.

Saw our first hummer (male Ruby-throat) of the season at the feeder this morning, a cheery sight on an otherwise gloomy (30-ish, overcast, spitting light snow) morning...

I haven't seen one yet! darn it!

I've had my feeder out for two weeks and changed the water twice already.

No activity here yet. :-(
