Home Made Hummingbird Feeders

glledoSeptember 12, 2012

Here is a modification of the "pub" home made feeder that is on the internet. I just took it to an extreme. Over the years, my flock has been increasing and this summer I am up to about 50-75 Hummers. They consume about 2 gallons of clear sugar water every week at a 1:1 ratio. I call it my Hummingbird Saloon. It has 116 feeding cups, and measures about 4� X 4�. Each branch is about 2' long.
