I just love hummingbirds. Here in Northern California we have several species of non-migratory hummingbirds. The ones I see most often are Anna’s Hummingbirds. While I have a lot of blooming flowers in my garden, I always like to have a full hummingbird feeder. They’re a lot of fun to watch. (But hard to photograph…I’m cheating with this great photo from the internet.)
I was in line at Wal-Mart yesterday. I always checkout in the garden section since the lines are always so much shorter. I was in line behind a woman who was buying hummingbird food. Now, why would anyone buy hummingbird nectar when it’s so easy to make yourself???
Here’s an easy recipe to keep your local hummingbirds happy:
In a saucepan, add one part white sugar to four parts water. Bring to a boil and then cool before filling your feeder.
Make sure your feeder is clean and mold free. Hummers don’t like soap, so just use a brush and some bleach water to periodically clean out your feeder.
Do you have any wildlife in your yard?
