Hummingbirds are back!

We noticed a hummingbird outside our dining room window on May 1st.  We normally have a nectar feeder out there, but didn’t have it out yet.  So, we whipped up a batch of nectar this week, and hung up the feeder.  🙂

Here’s what we do to fill a feeder our size:

Boil 3 cups water & pour into glass measuring pitcher.

Add 168 grams or 3/4 cup organic, evaporated cane juice (since we don’t buy white sugar anymore, the birds get what we get…).

Mix until dissolved, cool, add to feeder.

It usually takes “our” hummingbirds about one week to polish this amount off. 🙂

Here’s a view from our dining room window.  A trio of bird seed, suet, and nectar!  🙂
