I love feeding hummingbirds so from early spring to late September they frolic and flit around my feeder. Lately, however I am experiencing a bit of a mystery. Every morning I fill the feeder and at dusk there is till nectar in it, but by the next morning, it is empty. This is no one time occurrence but happening every single night!
So since the feeder is not leaking, a nocturnal visitor must be the culprit. What could it be? My first thought was that it was a raccoon, but upon further investigation I am coming to believe bats are visiting my feeder.
Anyone have this problem? I don’t know why it is-- but odd things always seem to come my way. As it stands I am re-filling the feeder every morning. I have sat up late, looked out on the deck hoping to catch the little thief in the act with no luck. Just last night the feeder was knocked off it’s pole completely.
So, I am thinking I have no choice but to take it in and put it in the garage every night.
Suggestions are welcome.
