I Have Always Loved Seeing Hummingbirds Zoom By.

You know that feeling of seeing a shooting star? That is how I feel when I see a hummingbird fly by.

If you see a hummingbird feeder around you already know it increases your chances of seeing a hummingbird, however, some people are killing Hummingbirds without realizing what they are doing. If you love feeding these beautiful creatures make sure you know what you can and can't feed them.

Did You Know That Honey Can Kill Hummingbirds?

 I thought that "natural sugar" like honey was totally fine for hummingbirds, it turns out I was so wrong and a mistake like putting honey in a feeder could kill a hummingbird.

Only Use Plain White Sugar in Hummingbird Feeders.

on Behalf of Hummingbirds:
This hummingbird is unable to retract her tongue due to fungal spores that have germinated on her tongue or in her gullet caused by folks mixing honey or anything other than plain white sugar with water. She will die because she can no longer feed.
If you have feeders, PLEASE USE ONLY PLAIN WHITE SUGAR in your mixture of 1 part sugar to 4 parts water. No organic or raw or brown sugar, no powdered sugar, no honey, no artificial sugar. Use plain white sugar/water mixture which is most similar to actual flower nectar. And no toxic red color liquids such as Koolaid etc..!
Change the sugar water mixture every couple of days, especially during high temperatures, as it will start to ferment if it sits out for days on end.
If you can't or won't do this, please do not put out a feeder at all."
