Ah ha! Now I have documented proof of who's drinking up all my hummingbird nectar -- and it isn't hummingbirds!
I have three hummingbird feeders located around my patio, on the opposite side of the house as my finch feeders. A couple of weeks ago I started noticing a lot of finch activity around my patio and less presence of hummingbirds. It took a while to catch them in the act, but it looks as though these little purple finches have a sweet tooth/beak.
Has anyone else ever seen finches at their hummingbird feeders?
