It's taken a while but we have built up some
nice traffic to our hummingbird feeders in the back yard.
Originally I thought our umbrella was blocking
their view of potential threats and scaring them away.
When we put it down for a while they came closer
and started eating at our feeder that is hung the highest.
Now that they are more comfortable, the umbrella is back up
and they seem to like the seclusion of it.
We have two lower feeders that are almost under the umbrella
and they are emptied the fastest.
I even got scolded today when the lower feeders were empty!
