apparels dressed in formal occasion for maternity ladies
So the bananaquit pair that nest outside our bathroom door had 3 babies prior to hurricane Maria that passed last night. We are all ok but I haven't seen parent birds come back & babies were peeping. I had some sugar water mixed up for the hummingbirds and bananaquits, so I put some in an eye dropper, climbed up a ladder and surprise! They are happy to be fed by me. apparels dressed in formal occasion for maternity ladies
I recall reading that someone who was raising baby hummingbirds had to mix in dried insects for protein----and ... I just 'happened' to have a jar of dried crickets & mealworms for the hedgehog & turtle. Sifted out the powder on the bottom of the jar, mixed it with the sugar water, so far so good. Little birds even stuck their tails out the nest to poop!!
Any one know how much/how often they need to eat? So far they're taking in at least 2ml of fluid(!) every couple hours but that's just because I'm busy cleaning up from storm flooding. I think they'd eat every time I walk by, I hear them cheeping
