When we first moved to Rigaud, our neighbours told us that the birds disappeared… to my house. I feed all of them, the hummingbirds, chickadees, goldfinches, rose-breasted cardinal, woodpeckers, they are all most welcome, and the table is always set. So here is a painting of one of my feeders. For those of you who do not know this, hummers are very territorial… you can hear them buzzing around whenever a visitor tries to snap some of “their” sugar water.

Sugar water recipe:
4 parts water for 1 part white sugar, boil for 1 minute and voilà!
