I've never really had humming bird feeders as an adult, so I don't remember much about them. I live in North Georgia. About a week ago I was on the front porch and a very green humming bird came right up to me, hovered in front of my face for a few seconds, and then took off again.
The kids and I went to Home Depot, bought some feeders and commercial nector, and hung them along the same porch that I saw the little green bird. So far no hummers have come back to our feeders! They are both still full and attracting nothing but ants!
Are we early in putting the feeders out? Or do you think we have some other issue that is keeping the hummers away? I plan on getting some ant moats, but haven't found any yet.
BTW- We also got a bird feeder and we have tons of little birds coming to that. The bird feeder is atleast 20 feet away from the hummer feeder
