Add a little fun to summer....

 We love to feed the birds.
All winter long we have cardinals, chickadees, goldfinches and woodpeckers.
Summer is upon us, and we have hummingbirds.

All you need to do is purchase a fun feeder and mix the following.

Mix 4 cups water and 1 cup sugar.
Boil your water and mix in  the sugar.
Stir until completely dissolved.
Let cool.
Pour into feeder and enjoy!

 Can you find the hummingbird?

One of our favorite places to visit, David R. Obey Ice Age Interpretive Center

The Nature Center has many feeders. It is so much fun to sit and watch the show of hummingbirds.
Do you feed the birds?


  1. I feel as if I am back in WI. I saw several hummingbirds every day, while I was on vacation. I miss them already.

  2. I enjoy feeding and watching the birds. My garden attracts hummingbirds.
    Love your pictures Carla.
    Have a wonderful day

    I enjoy feeding the hummingbirds also. They usually stick around until October.
    We also have Orioles right now - they love the grape jelly and sugar water too.
    Your pictures were pretty Carla.
