Dirty Feeders at an Inn
Was away for this past weekend and we stayed at a really nice inn. House was beautiful and cozy, grounds and garden outstanding, owners were real nice, etc. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw feeders hanging near one side of the house, but as I approached them it was easy to see from far away that the feeders were not changes in a while. From a distance you could see they were cloudy, and from close up you could see tons of mold and stuff floating in the sugar water.
I wonder just how many feeders there are out there that are just like these. I do know that my local Walmart has sold plenty of the first natures, so the possiblity is huge. I wonder if any hummers are harmed by people that don't change the sugar water enough.
