I am only seeing males late in the evening too dark to photograph. Why are the males only hitting my feeders this late. I have yet to see one earlier in the day.
Seems lots of folks are getting that this year! I haven't seen a female in almost 2 weeks! They do come early, though. Just not as many. And I'm not seeing nearly the numbers I had a few weeks ago!
Im also a zone 6 but I see males thruout the day. Females are nesting but they still need occasional food and if the young are hatched food for them. Took these around 2pm
heres a flighty male having to do battle with yellow jacket who doesnt want to leave the feeder.
