Here they come

The day that my tribe has been waiting all winter for. They just love sitting at the window watching the hummingbirds.

Hey, how do you keep ants out of your feeder? I had a young hummingbird who was a regular customer last summer (the only customer), but I had to change the liquid practically every day because a never-ending parade of ants would march to the feeder to commit ritualistic suicide. Has anyone else had that happen?

Yes, I have that problem too. I put vasoline up and down the route to the nectar, but somehow or other, they get there. One year I used Vick's Vaporub. Another year, I gave them their own dish of sugar water, but I guess the forbidden fruit tastes better.

My first sign of Spring was a fly outside my window yesterday! All the ladybugs that hibernated in my house all Winter are waking up and are trying to find ways to get back outside!

I'm sorry I took so long to reply to this. I was waiting to get a photograph

I don't bother with trying to keep ants out of the feeders. I have someone to do that for me. This is one of the females from my 5 or 6 Downy Woodpeckers. The feeders I use have oblonged feeder openings that they can get those little chisel beaks into, and they enjoy a sip of nectar from time to time. Plus, they thoroughly love ants. They do all sorts of acrobatics hanging from the shepherds hooks and support wires that I have my feeders on, snatching up the ants.

Sorry about the quality, it was taken through a window during a light rain.
