A Special Note to Our Hummingbird Feeder Friends: For our friends who love to feed hummingbirds, we have an excellent article written by Dan Gleason, Ornithology Instructor, University of Oregon with timely advise on why it is so important to use the standard 1 part sugar to 4 parts water ratio when mixing hummingbird food for your feeders. To prevent harming the birds we so much admire at your feeders, please read Dan's advice on why high sugar concentrations can debilitate hummingbirds, especially during the cold winter months. And never -- ever -- use honey as a sugar source in a hummingbird feeder. Click here to load the article: hummingbird nectar.pdf .
