Okay, I’m not really wrangling them but I am hoping to attract them with our new hummingbird feeder! This, in my opinion, is one of the best hummingbird feeders because it’s budget-friendly, super easy to use with the wide mouth top, has a cute little place for the birds to sit on while they drink, and it’s easy to clean. It looks a lot like my last year’s feeder except it has the wide mouth top that I love.
Do you remember the hummingbird shots I got last year? Let me refresh your memory. So pretty! You can see a couple of others on an old post of mine.
I’m hoping to get some great shots this year too so in the meantime, I thought it would be fun to show you my feeder and where I’m hanging it. So here are the supplies. You’ve the food, the cleaner, the feeder that has the wide mouth top on it, which is fantastic.
See how it works? You screw it on the base, screw the top cap off so that you can easily pour the food in.
Here’s the food. For ever 2 ounces of water, you use a heaping teaspoon of hummingbird food. It turns the water red instantly. Make sure the whole top is pushed down until ready to hang. Stir food well and pour into your feeder, screwing the top cap back on.
It’s read to hang outside!
From our back door, we chose to put it over the right of the house,hanging on the awning. Right before hanging, we pulled the top half of the feeder up so that the food would flow to the flowers. It’s a great idea so that you don’t spill it beforehand.
It looks good up there huh! I think that I’ll be able to capture great photos of the hummingbirds from our back door and we’ll have a great shot of them through our living room window.
Now we just wait! In the meantime, you can check out the other hummingbird feeders starting at $11..told ya they were budget friendly! AND, while you’re in hummingbird mode, be sure to play the top-fill challenge and you could win your own feeder.
