How completely awesome! I love hearing Hummingbird Tales! I saw a video on FB that had about 50+ some hummingbirds all taking a bath together at this communal bubbling bird bath and my first thought was — ‘what’s in that water? Some kind of anti-aggression hummingbird tranquilizer no doubt!’ My hummingbirds are also very territorial! I sit outside and enjoy the daily dog fights!

Getting a new feeder every year sounds like a very good plan. I routinely soak mine in bleach & water before putting it up for the winter. I have a couple so I run them through the dishwasher too, as well as take a brush through the feeder ports. I don’t really have much of a life — so I can devote a lot of time to the care & cleaning of the feeders LOL. I make my own nectar too. Since my kids are grown — it’s just me & the hummingbirds…

Self discovery in progress, stay tuned
