My Grandparents (both in heaven now) lived in Wisconsin, and used to feed hummingbirds and I loved watching the little creatures come and drink right outside their windows.
They made their own nectar to feed them. So, I knew I could do it too. First, I had to find a pitcher to store it.
Found this baby yesterday at the local thrift store. I decided to label it, well, because...funny story here...This past summer while in WI I drank some hummingbird juice. Not because I wanted to, but because it was placed on the counter at a family gathering for a selection of drinks. Apparently everyone (out there) knows that that particular pitcher held the nectar. We, on the east coast, did not know. So, I poured it thinking it was water and boy did I get a surprise!! No wonder the birds keep coming back. That stuff is sweet. : }
So, I made my nectar and hung my feeder.
So, now I just watch and wait.
