I must admit, now that the hummers are here I’ve been a bit addicted to constantly being on the outlook for them. I have definitely confirmed that there are at least two of them, and perhaps up to four that buzz in and out of my garden.
They’ve been hungrily dining on the sweet water that I mix for them, 1/4 cup of sugar to 1 cup of warm water (then cooled.) I even got them a second feeder that has a place for them to sit while dining. But they prefer the one without prime seating. Go figure.
Even on Monday at Bombay Hook I managed to find the Hummer’s hangout spot. Visiting the blooming milkweed, one came close to me and hovered while fully investigating.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I.
