Any ornithologists in the crowd?
Does anyone know the trick to getting hummingbirds to come to a feeder? I had no luck at all with this when I tried last summer. The only thing the feeder attracted was ants I found floating in the feeder’s juice that became sun bleached clear after months with no action.
I’ve heard it helps to have the feeder near some cover, such as perched next to cardinal flower in the garden, but looking at the feeder in this photo, it looks like it’s totally exposed next to a cement wall.
