Please clean your feeders and replenish the nectar every day until temps cool down.
Nectar should be made in a 1:4 ratio, meaning 1 cup of sugar to 4 cups water. Any stronger can leave the birds dehydrated. Use only granulated sugar. Never use organic or raw sugar and especially NO honey, which can be deadly.
And every bird needs water, so please keep bird baths and fountains clean and fresh too.
Our birds will love you.
