Time to get out the hummingbird feeder! If you don't have one, they are fairly inexpensive and can provide you with many hours of enjoyment watching these fascinating birds come and go. Don't bother buying the mix, just make your own. Mix 4 parts water to 1 part sugar. Do not use honey! Change the sugar water regularly, at least every couple of days and be sure to keep the feeder clean. And skip the food coloring dye, they don't need it, and it may even hurt them.
