Thumbs down Ever hear a CRASH and do a what the hell?

Mixed up Hummer food (1/2 cup of sugar to 2 cups of water) and filled/put out same. Rinsed out the measuring cup and back to work (computer). 15 minutes later a huge CRASH in the kitchen.

No idea how/why but a heck of a lot of glass to sweep up.

That was the hummers rejecting your weak mix. 4-1 is what we use here.

Humming Birds!

It's been going on 10 years now since I had Humming Birds to feed. You remind me that I miss them Fred.................

2 days ago the first Robins showed up out back, just in time for the last snow of the season I hope. Not a whole lot of variety here during summer in the back yard but a short walk to the wet lands and there are more variety of warbler than I can identify.

Out at the cabin it's a birder's dream, maybe I'll start a list on species this year and try to sort them out.

We've had the Broad-Tailed hummers here for a few weeks. They arrive early so they can have a few weeks of relative peace before the Rufous show up. Then the hummingbird wars commence. Great entertainment..

The mix is dependent on how often you want them to come back to the feeder. The higher the sugar content, the less they need to visit. If the weather is cold/wet up goes the sugar ration. But the 4 - 1 (or close) is my usual. In the early season I'll even go to 3.5 - 1.

But 1/2 cup of sugar to 2 cups of water is still your basic 4-1 for a feeder. Which reminds me, (Memo to Self) I need to trim back a rose bush so I can watch same better.

End game is every week you want to really dump/scrub out a feeder.

Did so today and in the back yard Finch feeder .... earwig's ... tons of the damned things! Euuuugh! Even the Hummer feeder had one in the bloody thing, not to mention ants.

Yup, 4:1 is what is recommended. Those little entertainers need a lot of sugar energy to keep performing.
