Our Gila Woodpeckers think the hummingbird feeders are their own private sugar supply and are quite successful in emptying them. Luckily the hummingbirds are feisty and can usually overrule. At this time of year, there are enough wildflowers (even though we had a drought again this year) to satisfy the hummers; they'll return to the feeders in a month or so, when the wildflowers disappear.
Hey Pam nice to hear from you again. Pleased to see some more pictures from you too.The green throated caribs (our big hummer) will quite happily turf these guys off. The smaller species are a bit shyer around the feeders generally and are not so keen to mix it up.
