What other birds are you finding on your hummingbird feeder? My daughter took some pictures of a red bellied woodpecker on our hummingbird feeder yesterday. What's on yours?

I have a chickadee that likes to drink out of the ant moat :) Christy

Back in the Spring, a Downy Woodpecker and a Tufted Titmouse used mine.

We get whopper orioles! They are the most furtive of birds and they make a "chuck chuck" ugly noise I learned to recognize and when I hear it I dash to the window to see if I can spot one, it's tough because they won't even let me look at them through the blinds. We use the glass 27 oz feeders and the orioles hang upside down with their feet around the plasticized wire the feeder hangs from to use the feeder. They must be able to get something like this because they keep coming back. They are really gorgeous and huge.

House finches try to swing the feeder to get it to drip. :0)

In early May I got a baltimore oriole. He attached himself to the window feeder and scolded me. Needless to say I got a very good look at him! I've seen a downy woodpecker on the tube-shaped feeder. And a purple finch drinking out of the top of a saucer shaped feeder

I get Flickers, lesser goldfinches, and even had a White Winged Dove attempt to snag some Hummingbird grub. :)
