We’ve put a couple of hummingbird feeders here at our condo. We had a regular bird feeder up for a while, but they asked us to take it down for a while to keep the rodents away.

When we put our first feeder up, we had a dominate male that chased all the other birds away. So we got a larger feeder so that he wouldn’t be able to dominate anymore. Well, we got a lot of hummers! At times there’s 12 different birds trying to feed at the same time. Here’s our first feeder:

Now we’re having to fill the feeders twice a day! We’re always looking for a sale on sugar, and having to boil syrup every night. But we enjoy watching their antics and we can hear them buzzing trying to get to the feeders.

I can’t seem to get the bird to pop out of the background. I’ll keep trying, it gives me a good assignment.
Come visit us and enjoy our flying circus!
