Ruby-throated Hummingbirds…They are still around

DSCN1678

They are still around! Our Ruby-throated Hummingbirds will be here until October. Don’t forget to change the nectar every three days. The ratio is 4 parts water to 1 part sugar (4/1). Remember….Don’t add anything besides sugar to the water…no red dye, no vitamins, no “healthy” stuff…Sugar water is the closest thing to flower nectar. Have any questions? Give us a call or stop by.

Hummingbirds spend at least 75% of their day sitting. This is a great time to snap a photo of these birds…Nice and still.

It’s only going to be 99 degrees today but the birds really need fresh clean water.

Help them stay cool!
Thanks Mary Morris for the photo!

Hummingbird Moths

Check out this Hummingbird Moth that Jodi Tracy caught with her camera…fantastic shots! It’s that time of the year when you will be seeing these awesome moths. As they buzz by, they are often confused with Hummingbirds. Hummingbird Moths use a long, thin, needle-like mouthpart called a proboscis to eat. The moths are seen during the day and in the early evening. Keep a look out for these moths…And share any photos you get. Thanks Jodi, love the photos!
