Wildlife

Here are some beautiful wildlife photos for you to enjoy!

 

Hummingbirds

 

We have a new video! Early one morning the camera was actually charged and ready to go, so we got some new video of the Hummingbirds feeding on one of the feeders on the front porch of the Hummingbird Inn in Branson Mo.

We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we do!

 

 

 

The Ruby throated hummingbirds who visit our Branson bed and breakfast every year are a joy to watch.

These tiny aerial acrobats will capture your attention and steal your heart! Ron and Sherry have been building up the local population of hummingbirds for years. At first we only had one or two pairs, but before long we had a hummingbird haven!

There are now so many hummingbirds that spend their summers around the inn that we go through about 6 POUNDS of sugar a day to feed them! Several of our guests have asked how we mix our "hummingbird food". We just mix 1/3 sugar to 2/3 water and add a little food coloring.

If you’re just starting to draw these little birds to your home, you won't want to put out too much. In the summer it will go bad in about 3 days in the heat. We have found that the little bit of red food coloring we add not only attracts the hummers, but it also helps keep the food a bit longer (and helps us to see how much is left in the feeders). Just put enough in the feeder for a few days and rinse and refill it when it runs out or in 2 or 3 days and keep the rest of the "food" in the refrigerator. It will last a long time there.

If you have ever had the experience of getting a hummingbird pair to visit your feeder and then after a few days they didn't come back, it is most likely that your food spoiled in the feeder. Make sure to replace it every 2 or 3 days and they should stick around.

If you notice your hummers going from flower to flower around your feeder and then flying off, you might need to "burp" the feeder. If the day isn't windy and the feeder is undisturbed, the hummers can drink all the nectar in the base of the feeder and the nectar in the top may not flow down. Just tap the bottom or tilt the feeder and any air bubbles will go to the top and the bottom will fill again. Don't tip too much or you will spill the nectar and might attract ants or bees. It is amazing how ants can figure out to go up to look for the source of the nectar.

If you’re having trouble with ants clogging your feeders, just take a little bit of olive oil and rub it around the length of the wire you hang your feeder from. They should leave it alone then. Wasps and bees are a different story. Some feeders come with bee guards (little plastic mesh boxes around the "flowers" that the hummingbirds can get through but only the smallest of bees can fit through). Another idea is just to make sure your feeders don't leak. You will still have a few pests but not nearly the problems a leaky feeder causes.

 

We hope you enjoy these photos of our namesakes! We are working on getting a lot of new photos, so check back soon!

We have a lot of deer who frequent our back yard as well as the pasture on either side of our driveway. We have recently spoted 2 doe with 2 fawns each, though we haven't gotten any pictures yet since they prefer to come at night.

We are working on getting a lot of new photos, so check back soon!

This baby was having fun kicking up his heals that day.
The two mammas just watched him as if shaking their heads at his crazy energy.

We have one large Tom who frequents our backyard quite often. Less often we have several hens come around. We have put out a corn feeder for them as well as the deer and other various critters who will love the free meal.

We are working on getting a lot of new photos, so check back soon!
