Texas Bird Family says:

I’ve had a female Rufous, 2 female Ruby-throats, and 1 male Black-chinned visit red Zinna. For some reason, they don’t want my feeders. I put a feeder right near the flower and so far no one has.

What solution recipe do you use in your feeders?

Texas Bird Family says:

1 part sugar 4 part water. NEVER change the recipe, too much sugar can cause kidney and liver failure in hummingbirds and too much water won’t give the hummers enough energy. Never use red dye.

Texas Bird Family says:

Only use table sugar.

We haven’t had rain since July 6th.
