OK all you armchair detectives....
Yesterday I cleaned and restocked my hummingbird feeder.  I have the Droll
Yankee LF-2 model that has little rubber flowerpetal-shaped ports that snap
in flat to the top of the feeder bowl and have ant guard tips on the inside.
Something pulled out two of the ports (which were lying on the ground under
the feeder this morning) so that there were just two plain, exposed holes
into the nectar bowl.
Ideas as to what had the strength and dexterity to do that?

in twilight rising over the edges of houses then falling back, like optical
illusions."  --from *Swallows* by Robert Kinsley
