I have been feeding humming birds for years in my Valley Cottage backyard. They are tiny wonders of nature that never cease to amaze me.They have the ability to hover in mid-air or fly forward, backwardand even upside down. The male is spectacularly colored with a rubyred throat patch and iridescent green feathers on his back. Everyyear the hummingbirds that come to our feeder seem to have differentpersonalities. Some are very shy, hardly ever being seen. Some arebold and will feed with a table full of people sitting a few feetaway at our outdoor table. One used to loudly bang his beak on thefeeder each time he drank the nectar. A few have perched to drinkover the years but most like to hover as they feed. Come fall theymake that long migration down to South America.

Hummingbird food is easy andinexpensive to make. Mix 4 parts water to 1 part white sugar, boiluntil sugar is dissolved and store in fridge. The nectar should bereplaced every few days in really hot weather and once a week or sorest of the season. I hang my feeder right by the window so I canenjoy my little friends all the time. Put a feeder out at your houseand watch nature at her finest.Image title
