It is only mid-February and I'm thinking of how to attract humming birds to my feeder. I know all the ins and outs already but I have not had much luck. I'm thinking there are too many seasoned humming bird feeders around here that they go to every year but nothing I have read says they come back to the same feeders as last year.
I have the perfect spot right off the window by my computer. I have flowering quince tree to attract them but I have only attracted 1 or 2 a year and they don't stay with us all summer. I know our camping probably has something to do with this. You need to change the nectar every 3-4 days and sometimes we are gone longer than that. We have some new neighbors and maybe they will take care of that problem this summer. They could even do it right over the fence w/o entering our yard and they also get to watch the hummers too from their windows.
Phoebe and her babies Last year I followed this one and another one that had 3 in her nest, of which one was an orphan that was put in there for mom to feed.
Spring Fever, ahh, yes, but back to reality and doing something productive around here like the dishes in the sink from breakfast.
I hope you enjoy your day! And maybe share a little of your "spring fever", especially if you live in one of the north-east states like I do.
