Hummingbirds, Where Art Thou?

Ok, maybe i'm being a little too impatient here but when have i ever been noted for twiddling my thumbs with a smile on my face? For those who don't know me the answer would be....NEVER. Aren't you glad I didn't make you just guess that answer?

Anyway, the previous owner here had left a good deal of things behind when they moved. Most of it i have thrown away here and there but yesterday I decided to deal with the rest and see what if anything could be salvaged and what should be done away with. I loaded my son's truck with a lot that was bad but i did find a squirrel feeder and 2 hummingbird feeders. The Squirrel feeder needs a little work but it's in pretty good shape and I love squirrels so it will be a snap to fix and set up for them. The Hummingbird feeders are in perfect condition and just needed cleaning and filling.

Well their filled now and waiting for little birdies. So far I haven't seen any, but again it's been one day lol so I think i need to just be a little more patient here maybe.

Just in case though, i looked up what the best hummingbird feeders would be and found out something neat. Did you know that most hummingbird feeders are red and orange or pink because they are the colors that stand out to the little guys? They can apparently see all the colors that we see, however, the colors that really grab their attention are near UV colors. Soooooo, now i'm considering buying another red one to replace the blue one i cleaned up and filled lol. I want the best chances of seeing birdies!

Do you have any animals that you try to attract? If so, how do you go about it and does it work?
