How long does the necture solution last?
Two weeks ago, I saw my first hummingbird. Of course, I'd seen pictures and I've seen them on TV and stuff, but never in person.
Anyway, I was so excited.
Then, last week I saw either my 2nd hummingbird or I saw the same one again. It seemed to think that our chili pepper lights were tiny hummingbird feeders. Cute, but sad. So, I went and bought a feeder this weekend. Ironically, it's shaped like a giant chili pepper.
So, Monday night I mixed up some necture stuff and put it out. I think it was 1 cup of liquid and the feeder was about 3/4 full. Well, today at lunch I noticed that almost all the necture is gone. There's only maybe a teaspoon left.
Is it possible that a hummingbird drank it all that fast or is it more likely that the wind did it or something?
I have no experience with this, so I'm clueless.
Thanks in advance for your help!
