Aw, Sugar, Sugar

Lately, my Hummingbird feeder has become quite the popular hangout. I thought the lil birds lived entirely on the sweet stuff. I've learned instead that they also eat insects and use the sugary water for quick energy to catch bugs. My feeder must be the refueling station because it's empty by evening and I'm refilling it everyday with half a cup of sugar (4 parts water : 1 part sugar).

But if these insect fighters keep the bugs away from our deck I'll gladly use up my 10 lbs. of C&H Pure Cane Sugar to keep them happy and in the air.
