Hummingbirds like the Marmalade Bush

Hummingbirds are such an amazing bird to watch,  they just love the flowers on the bush right outside our RV.  On the Mountain View RV Park there are tons of these bushes and I see hummingbirds all the time.

Hummingbirds

In England where I come from, there are no hummingbirds just flying around.  I am not an expert I just like them and they fascinate me.  I could just watch them all day they are fabulous.  When I have visitors from England they are just mesmerized by these little birds.

Hummingbirds are so tiny and quick at flying that you could easily miss them.  They flit, they fly, and they hovver.  The cool thing is though that when there is food around for them they stick around longer.

The humming birds hover in the air and use their beaks to get the nectar from inside the flowers on the bush that is outside our RV.  The bush is called a Marmalade bush and there are so many in this RV Park it is really pretty with orange everywhere.  The winter is coming so the orange petals are starting to fall to the ground.

We have a marmalade bush right by our outdoor grill.  We sat there barbecuing and just watched a hummingbirds come and feed, it is just an awesome site.

This was the hummingbird last night feeding from the marmalade bush.

When we lived in our house in Bakersfield, we had a couple of hummingbird feeders in the back yard that we kept full for them so that in the winter they had plenty to eat.  We had hummingbirds fighting over them it was so cool to watch.

Winter

I know that in California we do not really have harsh winters but have a thought for the hummingbirds when all the flowers have gone what are they going to eat.  Put out yourself a hummingbird feeder and then you can help them through the winter months.

Here is the feeder that we will be putting up in the winter ready to help them and this is the feeder that was in our back yard.  Just look at the hummingbirds they love it.

The solution that you put inside the feeder is sugar and water with one part sugar to four parts water,  boil the water to kill any bacteria let it cool and fill the feeder it is that easy.
