Feed Them and They Shall Come
I have had 2 Hummingbird feeders filled with the store bought nectar for quite a while now hanging from trees and they never came. I don’t know if it was the nectar or the location.
After watching a couple of videos I decided to make my own basic nectar and to move the feeders.
The nectar is a 1 to 4 ratio (some sites give a different ratio). Add 1 cup of sugar for every 4 cups of water. Mix together well in a pot and boil. Make sure you stir well. Let cool then pour into feeder.
Now you wait…..
By the next morning there were Hummingbirds! By the time I got my camera ready they were gone.
Once I came home from work and after messing in the garden for a few minutes I sat and waited for them to return.
I did not have to wait long….
I believe the red one is a male Ruby-throated Hummingbird and the less colorful one is the female Red-throated Hummingbird.
Why are males always more colorful in nature?
Thanks for visiting
