Thanks for the reminder, Raptor, and for the recipe. I usually try to remember to put out the feeder by Mothers Day, even though around here they usually don't show up for several more weeks.

I have a little garden plot under the feeder I'm planting with bee balm and other goodies.
This looks like a good site with all kinds of advice for attracting the little buggers.

Just saw one last evening! It's the earliest they've ever appeared here (central PA).

Is it true that the little creatures nearly starve to death every night, and must imbibe early in the morning to survive?
I read that somewhere. High metabolic rate or something.

Hmm. Must get some yeast growing in MY sugar solution.

Now this is the kind of "hummer" I like to have around!

And I thought raptors ate Hummers not cuddled 'em. Or are you jus a'fatten them up....

And remember to change the solution often to keep harmful fungi, mold, and bacteria from growing.

Time to get yer feeders out!

Don't use food colour!

4 parts water to 1 part sugar rolling boil for 2 minutes!

Let syrop cool or you'll parBoil the little buggers!

If you attract them as they fly by they'll stay, If you put the feeder up too late you'll never get them!

Good luck

Raptor
