Hummers and other birds
I recently purchased two tower-type trellises that have a small bird statuette on top. I have planted vines that hummers like in the pots that the trellises are in, and have two small feeders near the statuette birds too. The little statues look like small wrens or sparrows, and are black wrought iron. Now I am wondering if the bird statues might scare off the hummers?
Also we have three feeders on a cross-post in our yard that the hummers liked last year, but have seen none this year.
My husband wondered if the hanging baskets I put there are keeping hummers away. Right now those baskets have tiny bridal veil plants coming back from last year and nothing else in them.
Do small bird statues keep hummers away? Hanging baskets??
