Hummingbird At Front Door Feeder

We have several hummingbird feeders around the yard and Path Garden. This is at the front door where we can see this little guy standing "guard " over his own personal buffet.


At the other end of the house is another feeder and the hummers try to keep each other from getting to either one. Once in awhile two will play the game. They try to out fox the one standing guard by buzzing him and he'll chase that one while the other gets a drink.

It is fun to watch and makes me wonder how some people have a whole group at one feeder and we have to have a feeder for each little bird?

It is not recommended to feed hummingbirds red solution in their feeders. The dye is harmful. Any of the web sites will back this up.


They are fun to watch. I make my own solution of 4 parts water and 1 part sugar. Bring to a boil and remove from heat and let cool.

So territorial these hummers are! So sad that their season is over here. Good luck on your journeys my friends, see you in the spring!
