Well said, Nature Lover! The cheaper the feeder, the better they like it. It is IMPORTANT to have red ON The feeder, but NOT in the nectar. The nectar should be CLEAR and should be made of one part table sugar to four parts tap water. I stir the sugar/water mixture up, heat it in the microwave for ONE minute, stir again until ALL the sugar is dissolved and then fill my feeders. The extra nectar I store in a jug or 2 liter drink bottle in the fridge. Clean your feeders and change the nectar every three days or when the hummers empty them. As an extra incentive to the hummers I planted my entire flower
beds with nothing but RED flowers
. My neighbor gave me 30 red Cannas that REALLY brought the hummers in. I am going to do the same thing this year. Check Walmart, Dollar General Store, Big Lots, or perhaps Dollar tree
for your feeders. Walmart had small hummer feeders for $2.50 each last year and Big Lots had small ones for $1.00 and the big ones for $2.00. My hummers loved these cheap feeders.
