The ruby-throated hummingbirds are back
They’re so swift – their wings beat 53 times a second. (info from Cornell – a wonderful birding site)
They love red or orange flowers – or, in this case, feeders!
I make my own syrup for them – 4 cups of water to 1 cup of sugar – boil – cool. Much cheaper than buying the store-bought version.
The ruby-throated hummingbirds aren’t shy – in fact I was changing the position of one of the feeders and I was practically dive-bombed by one of them.
And since they don’t really seem frightened by humans, I just might give this a try!
Wouldn’t that be cool?
