This is my new garden ornament. It’s called “The Tweeter Totter,” and it’s made to attract hummingbirds. I bought one, at the Bird Watcher’s General Store in Orleans, after watching bird after bird feed at the one in my parents’ yard. Hummingbirds in flight look like giant bees, and a person can’t help but stare at them, as she would at a baby, or fire.
There is, however, no action at my feeder.
Did I miss the height of the hummingbird season? Have they all headed south?
I built it. Why won’t they come?

It’s possible they are feeding when you are not watching.
Brookline is so exciting!
It is a strange looking thing. Sort of like a decorative coat hanger. I will check back to see how things progress.
If you have never before had a hummingbird feeder in your yard, it may just take a while for the birds to discover that it is there. Or if you have other plants, trees or shrubs in your yard that attract hummingbirds, you might want to try placing the feeder near there, as this will provide the birds a choice on which to feed either the plants or the feeder.
I have been learning about and developing articles on the subject of hummingbirds for athe past year or or so. I opperate two websites on the subject of hummingbirds. If you would like much more information about hummingbirds, please click the links below. The sites contain many articles about hummingbirds, video clips about hummingbirds, an informative tips booklet on hummingbirds, and much more.

Hummingbirds For Mom
Mom, you’re so optimistic, as usual.
Emily, after I respond to these comments, I am going to watch the sprinkler oscillate and *then* make some popcorn. You know me…
fairgrace, the feeder does indeed look like a coat hanger. I think it’s made from copper solder.
Zoe Ann, I moved the feeder over near some cone flowers, and I also, after reading the information on your web site, changed the nectar! It had totally slipped my mind. Thanks for the tips.
