Busy Hummingbirds - 8-7-19

Wednesday, August 07, 2019

The hummingbirds have been busy around our feeders lately!

I just refilled one of the feeders a couple days ago that had gotten ants in it. Somewhere I read that if you put olive oil on the loop or string the feeder hangs from, the ants will not bother it. So far it seems to be working! And in just a couple days, those hummers have sucked down about 1/3 of the feeder.... They usually "tank up" during August, preparing for the long flight back to Costa Rica that they'll begin later this month. Will miss hearing them zip around!
