Thanks to Trudy Carron for the reminder to clean and maintain our hummingbird feeders.

The National Audubon Society recommends using hot water or a weak vinegar solution, and to avoid using soap as the residue can be harmful.

    Thanks, Trudy. We love our tiny, colorful visitors.
    Here’s something else important to know about feeding hummers. Preying mantis are a real threat to them. They hang around a feeder & can actually kill a hungry, unsuspecting hummer when it’s feeding! I have a picture of this happening, but it’s just too gruesome to post.
