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?
