Mrs. Duff would like to thank you gentlemen,  we are somewhat newbies in the hummingbird feeding world.

They stopped coming a couple weeks ago.

I showed her this thread and within hours of the advice here, we had hummingbirds back.

To boil or not to boil, that's da question.🤣

I do use spring water and not the tap.  Burnsville tap water smells like the swimming pool.  I rarely use it for anything other than washing stuff.

Great advice, we'll do the same.  I also told her not to fill it too much..👍

Switched to sugar water today, and it was a success! Saw a hummingbird buzzing around my pine tree, then landed on a branch (never seen a hummingbird NOT flying before), then buzzed over and helped himself to a drink 😁

I've seen alot of hummingbirds in trees, unless it's early spring with no leaves or you litterly follow the hummingbird pretty tough to spot them little buggers!!!!

Is the sugar water slower to ferment, than nectar? Or does it ferment at all? I’ve had it out for a week, and they’re still loving it! Just wondering if I should be refreshing it at all.


All's I use is sugar water and I haven't had it go bad unless it is really hot out. Here are a couple of pics from last week.


This one just buried it's head in to it.




Here is one with it's tongue hanging out.
