It’s a common misconception that hummingbirds need to eat constantly, while they may be able to survive long periods of time without food. Hummingbird species can go weeks between feedings when their natural environment doesn’t provide easily accessible insects but when we do offer them an insect-rich diet it needs to be replaced immediately or the bird will starve and die.,

Hummingbirds are highly sensitive to changes in their environment. They need to eat every 2 hours, so it is important to change their food often. In the summer, they should be changed twice a day.


Hummingbirds need a diet of nectar and sugar water to survive. They are able to extract the nectar from flowers with their long, tubular tongues. The food they feed on can be plain water or other foods like fruit, honey, syrup, jelly, or even ice cubes. Reference: can you put plain water in a hummingbird feeder.
