Your hummingbirds called, they want fresh nectar

When temperatures are in the 90s, we need to clean and replace the nectar in our hummingbird feeders daily.  The sugar solution can ferment in a day when it's extremely hot, putting the tiny birds at risk for fungal infections.

Experts at the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center ask homeowners to do it right, or please don't do it at all. Here's a link with instructions for cleaning feeders and making nectar: Orange County Register.

Happy Birding!
