Did you get any new feeders this summer? Finding any good sales for the end of the year? There's a little time left in the fall migration, so show us your feeders!

I asked for the hummzinger for Christmas because I wanted a feeder that the hummingbirds couldn't "hide" behind. So far this fall, the plants have been of more interest.

Frank...that was a cute video!

I got two of these feeders at our local hardware store for $11.99 each. They hold 30 oz. of nectar and they have 6 feeding holes in each one. The hummers seem to love them.

I have that one Duc! A little more difficult to clean, but not impossible. Rose, how much does that First Nature one hold? i have the little one and it seems to be a hit too.

I like the First Nature too but when the bugs get real bad mine get loaded with them so I go back to the Hummzinger (it's portals are smaller).

I want to get another hummzinger for next year to put out in the back dayliliy bed. The raccoons don't mess with them for some reason. So I can leave them out.

The hummers are extremely territorial around here, and I very rarely will see 2 feeding at the same time. I have 5 feeders up and usually there is one bird aggressively defending each feeder. How I envy you that have multiple birds feeding! What a treat!
