Subject: RE: BS: Hummingbirds
I bet Bob thought he'd killed off this thread with those goofy girlfriend remarks. Not so!

I have been keeping an eye on the level of the water in my feeder, and it hasn't dropped at all so I'm assuming the hummers haven't noticed it yet. In the event that it takes them a little while, I'll ask this question. How long should I leave that water out there before I change it? And if I make extra and keep it in the fridge (having boiled it for a little while, as suggested above) is it healthy for the birds to fill the feeder from the fridge or should it be newly cooked sugar water each time?
