Watch the "Hummers" that come to our feeders.

These feeders are maybe 12' away from our deck where I sit with my "point & shoot" camera on the railing and zoom-in on them!


Filtered water and sugar is the solution used in these feeders.. usually 1 cup water / 1/4 cup sugar is the typical ratio.

Ever seen a Hummingbird "blink"?
