It's been a little over a week since I put my feeder out and the fruit flies are coming around. I put it near my nectar feeders so hopefully the hummers will start using it. I'm so excited. What a great idea!
I've noticed in the spring when hummingbird chicks need to be fed, I often stop seeing hummingbirds at my nectar feeders. Hummingbirds need protein that nectar doesn't supply, and I think the parents spend their time looking for insects to feed the chicks. This feeder should encourage the birds to continue to be where I can see them while they hunt for fruit flies.
Its a great profuct and seen hummingbird come to it
Well it has almost been 2 weeks since I put the bananas in and so far I havent seen any fruit flies. Which is weird because I usually cant get rid of them. Maybe it just needs to be a little warmer.
Yep, I'm sure they will get going once the nights are warmer!
