My Faithful Hummingbirds Are Back
I FINALLY caught a glimpse of my faithful hummingbirds this year. I think I had a hard time seeing them until now because I had the feeders so far out in the yard. This week I moved them back up by the house - right outside our living room windows and lo-and-behold my little hummingbird showed up!
Here is a picture of him or her from last year. I have since started making my own humming bird food - and they seem to be liking it so far. It is just a simple mixture of 4 parts water to one part sugar. I heat it on the stove till the sugar is dissolved, let it cool and then fill up the feeders!
Here's the a link to the recipe in case anyone wants to print it out. I always have to with my recipes....my newest ones have a spot on the fridge where I keep them until I have everything down pat.
