Yep, I gotta move that up on my to do list.
Except I don't think you really need to boil the water. I never have and the sugar dissolves just fine if you stir it enough. Also, in the past, I have added a drop or 2 of red food coloring, just for fun. I think they're attracted to it more so that way.
We have a regular birdseed-type feeder that gives me no end of pleasure. I have been amazed at how many birds come to eat there every day and the wide variety of birds that do so.
Great idea, and great capture!
Thank you for going the extra mile to leave a note. xoxo
