Repurpose Your Ripe Fruit and Vegetables to Attract Amazing Hummingbirds with the Enchanting Humm-Bug Hummingbird Protein Feeder!
Have you ever wondered what to do with your leftover odds and ends? Good news! The Humm-bug provides you with such an outlet.
By incubating whole fruits and vegetables in this hanging container, you’re helping out hummingbirds with a reliable food source for feeding their young. During nesting season, adult hummingbirds need to feed their nestlings every 20 minutes, in addition to feeding themselves every 10 minutes to sustain their energy. So it’s preferable to have food nearby! While one hummingbird can eat 100 fruit flies a day for protein, imagine how many fruit flies the adults and fledglings can eat in one day. A lot! This natural food feeder is a necessity because it provides nesting hummingbirds with the protein they need to grow, which is now easily available within their local habitat.
Since this feeder operates with minimal maintenance, all you have to do is add a few bananas, sit back and let time do the rest — instead of cleaning your nectar feeders every day. Makes a great gift for hummingbird enthusiasts everywhere. The smooth red plastic is easy to clean every few weeks, while there’s plenty of room inside for whole pieces of ripe fruit. Attract gorgeous hummingbirds by safely incubating fruit flies by the hundreds with the Humm-Bug. Place this protein feeder in a shaded location near your nectar feeder, or near a grouping of nectar flowers, to attract hummingbirds.
There’s a convenient wraparound perch for hummingbirds to rest on while feeding so they can save their energy, while you enjoy your flying jewels for longer! The 15 vertical feeding ports are the perfect size for hummingbirds to slip their bill into to nab some fruit flies and bring back to their nestlings. So easy to set up and maintain with great fun for the whole family — a special way to spend quality time with your loved ones, while waiting for the hummingbirds to arrive. Find out what everyone’s talking about with the Humm-Bug Hummingbird Protein Feeder, now available at Duncraft.com. Enjoy watching a charm of hummingbirds use this feeder in the video below. Happy Birding!
