Here in SW Ontario, and many other areas around the country, the heat & humidity are going to continue once again this week! It is more important than ever to keep your nectar feeders clean & fresh. We have been adding about a cup of fresh nectar each day, cleaning and rinsing them out each morning before refilling them. There seems to be enough birds enjoying them that there is hardly any nectar left when we do wash & refill them! We have placed our nectar feeders in the shade….it must certainly help them to stay a little cooler & fresher during these hot summer days!! Some great info for cleaning your nectar feeders that we recently shared on fb - click here.
Don’t forget your bird baths, water dishes….keep them clean & filled with fresh water….often!
