New Hummingbird Feeder

All hummingbird feeders should have a perch. Seven of mine, do but this one does not. It also has no ant moat which is a real pain. This is pretty and made of glass but I can't believe the good price had me forgetting the lack of moat.....and perch.

 Those feet are so cute as she tries to hang on, poor thing...right next to here is feeder with landing perch at the port.

Also, please NEVER feed your hummingbird red food coloring..the stuff they sell aimed at these little birds is wretched and can cause problems. Making your own syrup is so easy. Four cups water to one cup sugar. Bring to a boil, stir and let cool completely before putting into feeders. Store leftovers  in a glass jar in the fridge. Will keep for a week.
