There’s all sorts of cool accessories these days to further entice hummingbirds; from the highly popular Hummer Helper Nest Material, to Leaf Misters in the garden and the ever critical ant moat which keeps nectar ant-free. But hummingbirds don’t survive on nectar alone, be it hummingbird feeders or nectar-producing flowers. They (as many other birds do) require insects for survival.
Their tiny but oh-so speedy metabolisms thrive on protein. Babies in the nest require protein- which nectar does not offer, plus transporting the sticky solution back to the nest is probably very difficult- if not impossible for the attentive and hard working mama!
Imagine feeding hummingbirds without messy nectar? And feeding them one of their very favorite, protein-packed foods? It’s fruit flies! Yes fruit flies may be a royal pain when flying in the kitchen, but outdoors, the tiny insects are coveted for their nutritional value. Here’s a whole new way to feed the tiny sprites, all natural and super healthy too.
Enter the new Humm-Bug Protein Hummingbird Feeder. An innovative feeder that incubates and offers fruit flies to hummingbirds. An all-around perch lets them rest to eat should they ever decide to sit still. Instead of changing nectar every 2-3 days in hot summer weather, just replace fruit and vegetable scraps every 3 weeks… rinse well when re-filling of course.
No more fighting over a feeder port, no drip, no mess, no mixing, no bees or wasps and no ants! We’re thoroughly stoked to try out this unique humming bird feeder… check the video to see the Humm-Bug in action.
The Best Valentine’s Gifts are for the birds! Because they’re long-lasting and provide daily joy and entertainment, kind of a reprieve from the chaos of life. They also help wild birds thrive, especially in winter. Roses fade quickly, chocolate’s gone in a few days, but gifting a unique bird feeder is something that will bring happiness for years to come… think about that for a moment!
This Glass Hummingbird Feeder has the perfect Valentine’s theme! The tiny sprites bring so much joy to both novice and seasoned bird enthusiasts alike. Parasol crafts quality bird feeders that really do last a lifetime. Eco-friendly from recycled glass, they’re hand-blown in Mexico by true artisans. Hummingbirds love them and the top-fill design offers a no-leak, no-mess feeder.
Something a bit more substantial might be in order, and should the recipient lean towards contemporary or modern styles, the Bauhaus Bird Feeder rocks! It’s versatile for different foods and fresh water – which attracts more birds than anything. Handcrafted in Europe, the clean lines and sleek style look beautiful in the garden. Definitely a keeper, this stainless steel feeder remains rust-proof for the duration!
Simply stunning and superb quality, the vinyl looks like wood though it will never crack, rot or fade like wood does over time. The non-porous feeding surface is also healthier for birds. The copper stays bright & shiny for 4-5 years before weathering dark, and there’s a patina roof option which remains indefinitely.
Either of these unique bird feeders promises to be a coveted gift bringing joy and happiness (and songbirds) for many seasons to come… making it a perfectly swell gift for your love bird!
