We have 6 single port tube feeders which are having to be re-filled at
least twice a day because of Hummer and Baltimore Oriole activity. We
also have a small circulating
fountain with a about 2 gallon capacity. I photograph both species.
I am thinking of mixing the usual 1:4 ratio of sugared water for the
fountain to entice the birds to use the
spray and possibly feed from the ornamental copper lilly leaves. I am
aware that the water must be kept fresh and clean and it might be too
much of an enticement for yellow
jackets. Has anyone tried something similar and am I overlooking a
major problem which may be very detrimental?
