Prize: Perky Pet Hummingbird Feeder with Instant Nectar and Feeder Mop (ARV $17).

This is the Aster Top-Fill model. It's bright and lively, just waiting for your hummingbirds to sample its sweet nectar.

Hang it in a spot where the little hummers can fly in and out of easily. They are very fast movers but still an easy target while hovering, so they need a quick exit path. In order to coax them to your garden, place the feeder outside as soon as the weather warms up, even though they may not have migrated to your area yet. That way it will be fresh and ready when they are.

Watch closely for ants and bees in the feeders; keep your feeders clean.
