JG, that's a great report and obviously this little family is taking advantage of your easy food source. Keep up the good work!


I seem to have a family (mom, dad, and baby) coming several times per hour all day long to my feeder. Is this normal? I never thought they would want to be there quite do often! I live in SE Michigan, and we are definitely experiencing drought conditions.

G.Packard - glad to have helped! Thank you for stopping in to comment. By the way, hummingbird activity here seems to be back to a busy state. How about you?

G. Packard

so glad to hear this! I was wondering why they were coming to nectar less often. Very interesting. Thanks.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
