Hummingbird is probably some of the smallest birds in the world, but flapping tiny wings can be enough practice. Flapping up to 90 beats per second burns calories quickly; to maintain momentum, hummingbirds need to eat – a lot! To satisfy their fast metabolism, these busy birds consume half of their body weight in insects and nectar, feed every 10-15 minutes and visit 1,000-2,000 flowers per day.
You can help these hard-working craftsmen get the nutrition they need by providing them with their favorite post-exercise food – nectar. This sweet hummingbird can be made at home with a few simple ingredients. By filling your feeder with this DIY delight, you can equip nectar-rich plants and watch these beautiful little birds feed and pack all day.
below I give you some pictures of hummingbird food, hope you are inspired.
