My store-bought hummingbird feeder was worn down by wind and rain and just felt apart in pieces! Money-conscious that I am, and so in love with hummingbirds, I made my own.
1 plastic bottle (your choice in the size)
the cap of the bottle
1 plastic container
lid to the container
hammer, nail, scissors
Directions: Cut a hole in the bottle cap for the liquid to come out of. Cut a hole in the plastic container just big enough for the bottlecap to squeeze through. Cut 4 more holes in that lid for their beaks to get through. Push the container lid on top of the bottle. Screw on the bottlecap. Add the bottom of the container, Now it’s ready to fill!
Word of the Day – culibri – hummingbird
Tip of the Day – One part sugar to four parts water for the nectar. Just boil it and let cool. Don’t add any food coloring – bad for the little birds!
