Then no activity at all. I read online that the nectar goes bad so I made my own clear 1 to 4 mix of sugar and water and moved the feeder to a tree away from the house. Still no birds. What can I do?
FUNNY UPDATE: I know some of you have said not to move the feeder but I went outside to move it back to near the house where I could see it. I figured that if the birds haven’t gotten here yet that that would be a better spot.
Well as I was about to take the last knot out of the string holding it up I heard a peculiar buzzing over my head. I see nothing and then down hovers next to me a bright red throat humming bird and he’s just looking at me. So I’ve still got my hands on it and he goes in and is drinking for maybe 30 seconds. Then I here another one and it is brown but it wants nothing to do with what the other bird did so it sits on a branch about 2 feet away. Soon after that i saw a green and red one.
I still can’t see the birds on the feeder from my house very well though.
if you’re in CA your birds will come if the nectar is fresh and you leave ti where it is for long enough for them to check it out and decide it’s safe…..
I put mine up last week so that it would be a ‘normal’ object in the yard when the birds DO get here…. Some years ours show up in May, some years,not till almost July…. But they’ve been staying later…..
Have patience…. They’ll find you….
