My new hummingbird feeder has been up for three days now and has attracted hummingbirds and zero pigeons. if you follow this blog then you know what a disaster putting a seed feeder was. Those damn pigeons ruined any chance of feeding my favorite little birds. Pigeons are flying rats.
The 200mm lens is maxed out as you can see by the blurry photos but a 300 or 400mm lens is just too costly for this purpose haha! As best as I can tell, the golden hummingbird is a Ruby Throated hummer.
I have not been able to identify the other bird because looking at the different species, some of them look much the same and my photos aren’t definitive enough. I have seen four birds this morning and two this afternoon. I will try to sit in the backyard and wait to see if any birds will land on the feeder with me nearby.
