I got such a wonderful responce about gardening, I thought I'd try again.
How do you attract those pretty little sugar birds to dine? I've tried just placing a saucer out w/sugar, but it just ends up a melty mess :-X
What am I doing wrong?
The Sugar Birds that I feed only come between the hours of 8:45AM and 9:30AM. They will only eat in the shade and will only take dry sugar. I have about six (6) regulars. I have tried to trick them with flour, pancake mix, and salt they get mad and start chirping they didn't buy the Sweet & Low or equal either.
I have chickens and the sugar birds seem to flock to the chicks food more then the chickens do. So i don't think it alwasy has to be sugar. Also i have noticed that alot of the sugar birds have deformaties. I looked at some up close and personal and was shocked to see some strange things growing on them. Not sure why? But they seem happy and healthy besides that.
