If you ever have a chance to just sit and relax quietly, and you have the right plants, or a hummingbird feeder with fresh food, your bound to have some of these neat little birds visit you. I’ve been fortunate enough to have three around here, and it is pretty late in the season! We have lots of hummingbird plants around, and I have put out two feeders for the little guys.
We don’t use any store bought nectar in our feeders, it’s far to easy and way more affordable, to make our own. Our recipe is very simple, 1 part sugar, to 4 parts water. We usually make 4 cups of nectar at a time, so it it 4 cups water and 1 cup sugar. And these guys really go to town on it!
