Radnor Hummingbirds

Their man-made feeders are bright and colorful…and surely you have seen one if you don’t own one yourself. But, how often, if ever, do we get to see a hummingbird’s nest or where it is hidden?

Tiny and mysterious…playful yet elusive…we try to draw them in but just as quickly watch them dart away. Their man-made feeders are bright and colorful…and surely you have seen one if you don’t own one yourself. But, how often, if ever, do we get to see a hummingbird’s nest or where it is hidden?

Ranger Teisha Steuben makes sure visitors know not to use colored dyes in hummingbird feeders at home. She says research has shown those pre-mixed feeds cause the birds complications and shorten their life span. The proper vegetation is always best. But, if you are going to use a feeder Ranger Steuben recommends boiling four parts water and one part sugar.
