North Carolina Hummingbirds

One of the first things I do when we get
 to the cabbage is get the hummingbird feeders
 out. I clean them and fill them with fresh nectar. 
I have four feeders. Once they are hung on the 
deck posts we have lots of hummingbirds everyday.
It's very hard to get a picture of one, 
but they're here all day long.
That little grey blur on the left is a hummingbird. 
I make my own nectar, so I always have it.

Hummingbird Nectar
Mix 1 part sugar to 4 parts water (1C sugar-4C water)
bring to a boil, then let cool
do not add red dye
fill feeders
change water, clean feeders weekly or more often as needed.
