Hundreds of birds die in western Ky.

_-_Nope_-_, I have heard this trick before but I have not had a need to do this because by some luck, I don't have an ant problem related to my hummingbird feeder. I would like to share some news I read recently, Hummingbirds spend an average of 10–15% of their time feeding and 75–80% perching so I bought a swing for them this year. http://feedersands eed.com/ I do whatever I can to make my backyard more inviting :)  (Oct 22, 2013 | post #93548)

Yes, I noticed how aggressive they can be. This past summer I hung a hummingbird swing in my backyard next to the feeders because I read Hummingbirds spend an average of 10–15% of their time feeding and 75–80% perching. I really always thought they consistently flew around. I think the swing increased the time the hummingbirds spend in my yard. Going back to your observation, Dittybugdaisy, they sure are aggressive little birds! http://feedersands eed.com/  (Oct 22, 2013 | post #10)
