Long story short last year we planted a nice garden with lots of hummer favorites, got some hummingbird feeders and bought the good pre-made food… end result… I changed a feeders every 2-3 days & nothing ate out of them! WELL apparently one of them got left up over the winter & yesterday I heard a buzz by my ear & a hummer was eating out of it! The must have been eating out of it for a few days because there was a decent amount gone so I hurried & took it in side. I hope they don’t get sick, because I know it’s extremely important that it is fresh!!!!
Anyways I sanitized it, made some fresh food the way my grandma does (1 part white sugar to 4 parts distilled water or fresh boiled water) & once it finishes cooling off I’m gonna put it back out & hopefully they will keep coming back. The flowers aren’t even blooming yet so it really caught me off guard, I just figured since none of the neighbors had feeders out maybe we just didn’t get many of them! Now I need to find our other feeders!
