I have some ‘new’ to me birds feeding at my Hummingbird feeders. I really don’t know what they are so if someone out there does, please let me know.
It is possible these are the Lesser Goldfinch, but I’m not sure.
I am surprised that these big birds like to drink the sugar water…they chase the hummers off and have a go at it; draining the feeder in a very short while.
At first the hummers tried to dive bomb these big birds but they have given up now. If the big birds show up the hummers just move down to another feeder or fly up into the tree branches.
I tried putting out other types of food, but nothing tastes as good as sugar water! They just let the oranges turn to cardboard….
If you know please drop me a comment…it would be fun to know who is ‘bellying up to the bar’, so to speak.
