Jed and I took a work break this afternoon for a few hours to teach Kavi Wingspan. We had a lot of fun with their Wingsong app, that lets you hear the birdsong of the various birds!
She particularly liked the hummingbird card, and I told her that we could have hummingbirds in our garden, if we were very careful about cleaning the feeder, and I didn’t have time, which is why I bought a feeder but never used it, but she thinks she can take that on, setting an alarm to remind her to clean it once a week in the cool season, and every two days in the warm weather. That’s right, yes? And use regular sugar water we make ourselves, rather than buying hummingbird food, right?
I’ve never actually had a hummingbird feeder going, so advice welcome.
