Hummers made the news yesterday, in case you missed it. It seems that the drought is so severe, that the little "jewels" can't find enough native plants that, normally, afford them nectar, so they are swarming feeders. Interviewing one lady, she is keeping twenty (20) feeders filled. There was a shot of feeders covered with the little birds. That is so unusual, as they don't like to share, as a rule. My feeders are being swarmed, but the most birds on a feeder at a time is two. Migration is approaching, so we need to keep our feeders filled, so the birds will have enough strength to fly South.
Recipe for Nectar:
I part sugar
4 parts boiled, cooled water
it would not hurt to make the nectar a little stronger, 1 part sugar to 3 parts water, for more nourishment.
