[Tweeters] Putting up a hummingbird feeder now ? My FBOY

Now is an excellent time to put up a feeder as there are little or no flowers blooming.  My feeder does not get used for much of the year while flowers are in bloom and the hummers have "natural" food sources.  Once all the flowers disappear, around November, the hummers return to my feeders.

All the discussion about hummingbird activity makes me wonder whether it is too late or untimely to put up a hummingbird feeder now.  I had a feeder in the summer with little activity so took it down since there were lots of flowers.  However, if one would be likely to be used now I’d be happy to put one up again and would be thrilled to see some hummingbirds.  I live in Ballard and have seed and suet feeders up with lots of daily activity.    Suggestions ?
