A Bird Feeder and a Bird

Hummingbirds’ outrageously long beaks seem just ridiculous to us. They don’t seem that way to the hummingbird, of course. It would be interesting to go back 10 million years to see what plants necessitated such a long beak in order for the birds to access the nectar. This little fellow hangs out on my balcony frequently. As long as I keep the sugar water in the feeder, of course!

    1. They drink nectar from flowers that apparently have a high sugar content during the spring and summer. If you want them to hang around during the fall and winter you need to provide a highly suggested solution in the ratio of 1:4. 1 cup sugar to 4 cups water. It appropriates the sugar ratio of the flowers they are attracted to. I even keep the feeder up in the warm months just so I can see the hummingbirds up close.

  1. I love hummingbirds! We have a feeder, not too many birds. But we are hopeful that more will start to visit as spring comes along. But we do usually get one or two every day. I love to take photos of them too!! Very sweet! 😊
