I put up a hummingbird feeder a few days ago. We have a small courtyard alongside the house. A feeder seemed the thing to do.
Hummingbirds don’t ask for much. They’re hard workers looking to score nectar. My pleasure.
The feeder itself came from Target. It’s mounted with suction cups on a window to our family room. We can watch TV and hummingbirds simultaneously. The hummingbirds are usually more entertaining!
The nectar also came from Target. This will be the first and last time for that. It was only after I came home that I read coloring doesn’t matter! All that’s needed is a 4:1 water/sugar mix. Even I can handle that.
At the feeder the hummingbirds often seem to hover motionless as their wings flutter at incredible speed. They’re tiny and they fly fast. There’s nothing about them that isn’t cool!
So far Doppler hasn’t caught on. I hope she doesn’t ever.
