BEWARE: If you come into the store you may catch it!

It's been going around for a few weeks now. People come in and I've actually watched them pass it to unsuspecting customers that were just casually shopping! I don't know the scientific name for it, but I call it hummingbird fever.

I'm afraid I have it too, so beware when you come into the store. There is a new feeder coming in next week. Our sister stores out west have been testing it out for us with very positive feedback.

Hummingbirds are affectionately referred to as Nature’s Jewels because of their iridescent qualities and beauty. The new Jewel Box Window Feeder allows you to bring these beautiful birds up close for viewing. The bright red cover will attract hummingbirds. Once there, the HighView™ perch invites them to rest comfortably as they drink from any of three feeding ports while also offering an unobstructed view of the birds. You can use this feeder with or without the ant moat to block crawling insects. Features a generous 8 oz. capacity, sturdy polycarbonate construction, a suction cup mounted bracket, and a lifetime guarantee.

The only known cure for hummingbird fever is to be able to sit back and watch these captivating and charismatic creatures that have such an incredible drive.
Let me know when you site the first hummingbird in your area!
