I hope you have enjoyed asking and sharing. And if you have not contributed anything because you have a question that is not Hummingbird related, that's OK. Ask it anyway and I will move it to a suitable location. You will be notified of where it is if you have chosen to be notified when your question is posted.

There is a great deal that can come-up when feeding wild birds, so it is only natural that questions will arise.

And, there is no stupid question.

None of us know anything until we seek out the answers. And if you don't ask, you may never discover the truth about these enthralling animals.

Also by asking you may be able to help someone else. It is very likely that another backyard bird feeder will be helped out by the answers your question receives.

Thanks so much and please continue on this site!
