I have had a suction-cup hummingbird feeder on my office window for some time now but two weeks ago, the ants discovered it, even though it is on the second floor. The hummingbirds are not so fond of floating ants in their nectar so I bought this FABULOUS new feeder (which I highly recommend,) that includes an ant moat. Thus, my ant problem is solved! Check out this hummingbird moment, caught on film. What a spectacular gorget!! (That’s the red neck. When the sun hits it just right, look out!)
Special thanks to Bill for this video suggestion!
Did you know that hummingbirds have the fastest metabolism of any animal on Earth? Or that they are the smallest bird, with the smallest eggs? To read more about hummingbirds, click HERE.
