    Default Vancouver Island - pink nectar source?

    My girls have been bringing in small amounts of pink nectar. Is there a natural source for this or are they getting into someone's unguarded hummingbird feeder?

    Iím ~125 mi southeast from you (north Seattle area) but I think our floras are not very different. No, I have never seen pink nectar.

    My money is on the humming bird feeders. Some old lady somewhere is wondering why the feeder empties so fast. Birds must be hungry, have some more.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
