Add these window bird feeders to your home office
👋 Alissa here with a recommendation to spice up your work-from-home setup this summer.
What's happening: I thought two window bird feeders would help keep my cats entertained while I'm newslettering. But I ended up being more intrigued.
Details: I bought these on Amazon, though local stores likely sell similar items.
- Nature Anywhere hummingbird feeder, $30.
- Nature Gear window bird feeder, $20. (Thanks to Axios' Dani Alberti for the suggestion!)
My take: No matter how many times a ruby-throated hummingbird flutters by, they're always mesmerizing. They flocked to the feeder almost instantly.
- It'll take a couple weeks of patience for seed-eating birds to stop by, but it's well worth the wait.
🌻 Pro tip: The Audubon Society recommends mixing 1/4 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water to make hummingbird "nectar." No need to buy that red-dyed stuff at the store.
