YOU GUESS IT??
Hummingbird at a Feeder
Ruby-throated hummingbirds (female, shown right) migrate through eastern Nebraska in spring and fall.
In fall, the ruby-throat migration peeks September 2-18, but you may see the birds as early as August and as late as October.
You can attract hummingbirds by planting certain types of flowers, trees and shrubs.
It is also easy to set out feeders and make your own nectar for the hummingbirds.
Nectar Recipe: Mix one part granulated white sugar (common table variety) with four parts water. For example, mix 1/4 cup sugar with one cup water. Boil the water, dissolve the sugar and allow to cool before filling feeders. You don't need to add red food dye to the water.
Keep leftover "nectar" refrigerated. Change the mix in your feeders every few day, more often in hot weather. Be sure to clean the feeder each time before refilling to prevent harmful molds.
