That's so cool! I have never seen a hummingbird. YOu are very fortunate to see so many of them.
I was just taking pictures of my hummingbird tonight. Brave little fellow. then the rain started. But with all the flowers and honeysuclke, wel'll have more soon. I just love them.
I buy the ready made nector, just add water. Guess I'd better stock up with all the feeders I've got.
I love to watch the hummingbirds. One year I visited my Mother in Missouri and sat out on the porch and was buzzed by at least a dozen of them. It was evening and they were all hungry.
Love them! We have ONE coming to our feeder and he's such a bully! There can never be another one anywhere near "his" feeder! How DO you get such nice, polite hummers!!
GREAT Pics...I saw them for the first time on a vacation in California...but My Mom says they have them in upper Wisconsin tooo
We love our Humming Birds
Please post another photo if you can when the rest arrive. We don't get these beautiful birds where I live (South Australia). I find them absolutely gorgeous. Thank you!!
I will. We usually spend all summer taking pics of them. We begin with making approximately 6 to 8 cups of nectar a week for about the first month (thats 1 cup sugar to 3 cups of water). In July that will jump to maybe a gallon a week and sometimes more. I have seen my Dad use 20 lb of sugar every two weeks just on hummingbird food. There are 3 of us in the camp where we live who have atleast 3 feeders up all summer and we are constantly refilling them. My feeders hold 3 cups each so thats 9 cups a week for now. In July it will grow to 9 cups every other day. They eat like my grandkids lol.
I do 4 parts water and 1 part sugar and I have them yearly. This will cut back on your sugar. However, this is the recipe I found in a magazine on them.
Thanks for sharing.
oh wow brings back memories thank u for sharing this my grannie loved humming birds we have them and woodpeckers and mountain blue birds wild finches lol the list could go on like blue jays cardinals
Yeah, we have most of them also. This year our Blue Jays are huge. I keep feeding socks out for the finches, also.
This is just the begining. In a month or so there will be 40 to 50 at a time.
