Back home again. I bought a couple boxes of Mason Bees so set out their new home and got them all settled - look for the cocoons to hatch out in a day or two. The hummingbirds have definitely found the feeders - picked up two more and boiling some sugar water now - will get them set out tomorrow after it cools overnight. Their metabolism is so high that they need the carbohydrates - they also eat a lot of bugs and plants for their proteins and nutrients - the sugar is just to sustain the high metabolism.
Got another radio meeting tomorrow night so will be heading into town then as well.
