    Before you promote open container feeding, as a rehabber here in California, I wanted to share with you the dangers. If sugar water is spilled or spashes on a hummingbird, it desiccates the feathers, causing them to peel off and fall out in clumps. Not good when it impacts the bird’s ability to thermoregulate (control body temperature), prevent his water-proofing and even prevent his ability to fly. There are safer methods which should be promoted, such as closed hand held feeders http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-Hummer-Fun-Buttons-mini-hand-held-hummingbird-feeder-free-hb-keychain/331542397871?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3D511a943873b54bbe83caff0a89fe338d%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D231710379721
