Well pretty much a patient guy and way back when I decided to get my first computer(1997-1999?) to use the Internet I made a bargain with myself. If I get that computer and no schooling or education on one(TV Generation) I will step away from the computer before I even get close to frustration, it worked out well. Still haven't had a cigarette since last October 10th, so I am still keeping that promise. Well I put the feeder up at around 3:30pm on Saturday, I saw nothing till 7:05pm(Monday) tonight, just as I was getting ready to grill my steak. Most of the previous hummer action seems to always happen at suppertime, a couple hours before the sun sets. She came back again at 7:30pm, I was inside and saw her thru my back screendoor with my binocs. Sure as shootin' she's a female, medium sized, brown with a fairly long beak. Made a final appearance at 7:46pm, she's liking it. Well thanks for your help in this operation "Hummmer". Oh ya, earlier today I was checking out the feeder and found a small unit of "Ant Recon" maybe around 20 or so at the top of the metal feeder. I eliminated all of that scouting party. There was no stream of ants. What I figured out was in my effort to have my feeder blend in it was too close to the leaves, some of them touching the feeder, they had a natural bridge. I situated the certain leaves so they didn't touch the feeder. Later.
