Hummingbird Hiatus is Over!

Bob got a package of that “just add water” hummingbird food and we tried it for a week. Not a single hummingbird went near it, so we’re back to the sugar + water recipe and they’re back in full force. They took out almost 8 ounces of it in three days.

This is a female ruby-throated hummingbird. She’s been hogging the feeder all afternoon, chasing off the male I wanted to get a picture of. He’s a lot more colourful with his iridescent green head and red throat.
