I prefer the hummingbird feeder to our traditional seed feeder (sorry finches!). Although you have to keep it meticulously clean as not to get the hummingbirds sick, it’s still way better than the other kinds of feeders. Less mess, no weird weeds growing around the base of the post. No unwanted greedy visitors such as chipmunks, black or gray squirrels, well, rodents of any kind. Just butterflies and hummingbirds. 🙂
I hope to take a reasonable picture of a hummingbird this summer. I wonder what shutter speed I’ll need? I will scrapbook that one for sure!
