    Oh it was so funny! They were chasing each other around that tree and peeking out just a little to see where the others were!! Just like children! I was fortunate to see that!

    The simple things in life are just priceless!

    Regarding hummingbird feeders, the flat ones are the easiest to clean, and they deter bees by keeping the syrup out of their reach. However, they only hold 8 ounces, which won't last a day if you have tons of hummers. Of course, you can offer several small feeders instead of one large one. I have three of them hanging now, and will go to five or six as the season progresses. My favorite is the HummZinger, also sold as the Wild Birds Unlimited store brand.

    Hummingbirds quickly learn to recognize feeders as food sources as soon as they leave the nest, and I don't think the design much matters to them. What is important is that they feel safe while feeding. Good visibility of approaching predators and proximity to a place to escape from danger (dense shrubbery, e.g.) make a location ideal. All of my feeders hang in windows, so I can watch them easily.

    To attract lots of birds, consistency is the key: keep your feeders clean and fresh, and don't let them run dry. Mix one part sugar to four parts tap water, and clean/change the feeder when it begins getting cloudy (starts to spoil). No boiling is necessary, as it won't deter spoilage anyway--the mold and bacteria are transported to the feeder by the hummingbirds themselves, from the flowers they visit.

    I'm not allowed to post a link to my hummingbird website, but if you want more info you can Google "hummingbirds" and it will be the first site listed.

    thanks Lanny

    my observations of hummers are a bit different as I don't feed them with syrop. I use plants.I don't get the no.s but I get generations returning.They are territorial and return to nests.I can't actually see the nest sight because it"s so high up in the holy trees amount the rampant Honey suckle.But every year when they come back they buss my face as if to check that it's still me!Right up close as they can get.Also I have sky lights and sometimes I have to rescue a baby that has gotten confused thinking its a fun way to travel in the front door.Then I have to bring in the extension ladder and climb up 18 feet and without hesitation pick the poor thing off of the glass first try so they don't bash themselves.They recover in my hand quick as a wink the're off to the tree tops and I install the bead curtain cause I don't want to do that again!Iv'e never lost a one since I learned that my hand is the best tool for such an effort. I'm almost always alone when this happens and I am very carefull.My friend says that Dandylion seed is an important food for hummers so I don't cut till the seed is dispersed.I have a wild yard that I bush wack on occasion.

    The magpies are a nuisance, digging holes in the lawn.

    This is one lazy squirrel. He may be the one that amuses me daily with dumb antics.
