leaking hummingbird feeders ... !!
I have a handful of plastic hummingbird feeders both with plastic & with glass tops and I have yet to find one that doesn't LEAK!!! Both the ones with the holes on top of the resevoir (No perch)& those with the feeders on the side of the resevoir both with & without a perch must leak as I fill it & within the day it is empty (no, there are not THAT many patrons to the 'dinner table'!). I have sealed all the areas where the two feeder sections meet so doubt it leaks there but just maybe the leaks come from the feeding holes? OK, they are not fancy $$ feeders but I hate to buy any more $$ or fancy glass ones until I can figure out where
the leaks occur( the bottom always seems dry when I go out & touch it).
Also I rarely (or ever!) see more than one hummer at the feeder as if another comes while one is feeding they get into an aerial battle til the intruder is chased away. Is this common? Sure antisocial critters! Fun to see the gymnastics when the finches & sparrows try to take a sip without falling though!!
