High Energy Drink

Some creatures encourage their young to drink sweets. These are high metabolism animals, not to be confused with humans. No, not even toddlers or teens can compete with the energy needs of the tiny, winged patrons of this backyard feeder.

100_3706Hummingbirds back from a winter in Mexico or Central America should enjoy this backyard feeder.

Human assistance for this tiny, natural helicopter includes maintaining habitat for nesting, flowers for sipping, and fuel stations like that pictured above.

Basic recipe for hummingbird feeders:   One part granulated sugar, four parts water. Bring to a boil, then cool. Red food dye is optional.

Yum. Beak smacking good.
