According to http://www.hummingbirds.net/map.html Ruby-throated Hummingbirds
have been reported already in all New England states this Spring with the
exception of Maine. Nothing wrong with putting up feeders now. Just change
the solution every few days (more often in hot weather) and no need to use
red dye solutions (better to not use it), just sugar and water and keep the
feeders clean. Boiling the water first will help lower chlorine content a
bit (if your water is chlorinated) but be sure it has completely cooled off
before putting it in feeders.
