Quite the Hangout, Just No Hummers

The main station nectar feeder has in recent years been a fine place to find birds.  Only, they don't seem to be Ruby Throated Hummingbirds.  Instead a succession of small passerines, including Carolina Chickadee, House Finch, Tufted Titmouse, and Brown Headed Nuthatch use the feeder.  Predominantly these birds use the ant moat as a water hole.  But the wrens also hunt insects that are drawn to the sugar water.  What a wonderful service I have offered! Only, for a different clientele than expected!
