Grant, we have those bottle upside down feeders.  It took a little while, but our hummers, who are only here from March to October, do like them now.

We love our hummingbirds too but only get one kind, the ruby-throat, I like your purple guy!

I love all of the pics lately, thanks for posting it.  The owl and hawk and cowbirds are so fun to see.  Thanks for taking the time/effort to share them!  

Nothing TOO exotic here, but the hummers have finally forgiven me for changing their feeder, LOL (hey, it finally broke).  Now they're using the new one I set out.  We have several types that live here all year, and then several that visit from cold areas for the winter.  Take care and keep the great pics coming!

brown headed cowbirds, females sitting in the wisteria vine on my arbor.  They were eating the snow!!  I have about 10-12 females and one male that have continued to stay in the yard for over a month.  Usually they don't hang around this long or are mixed in with the blackbirds that come thru.  They are quite camoflauged  (sp?) in this photo.

Bonnie - I have read that when a hawk takes up residence in your back yard to take the bird feeder down for a week. That gets the hawk out of the habit of stopping by your yard. This would be difficult to do in winter but it is an option. We can hope a week is enough time. It may take two weeks and eventually the bad bird will find his way into your yard again!

Awesome naughty hawk! with his mouth wide open even! I try to keep the feeders near the woods for the little birds safety too.

Bonnie, not a lot you can do once he knows there is good eating...you probably know this but I have a lot of places in my yard for the birds to hide therefore they can get a quick get away.  I have a wisteria vine with no leaves, of course right now and also the crepe myrtle trees are pretty thick so the hawk doesn't come often cause they get away quick.  Make sure they have a place to hide from him even if it is the old Christmas tree put out by a feeder.  He needs open spaces in order to get a bird.

Bonnie love this photo, I just took a picture of our naughty HAWK  in our back garden. He sits there everyday watching the birds at our feeders.

Here is our naughty HAWK, he seems to like our tasty birds.  I think he brings his freinds too, they come every day and torment our birds. What to do?
