Well, it's Sunday and looks like nothing is getting down. So, we hung up a red hummingbird feeder on the back porch last week.
Our neighbor also put up a feeder and posted this question on our local Woodinville neighborhood forum, below.

...wouldn't worry so much about the Black Belly Lickers. The really vicious ones to watch out for are the red-headed, double-breasted, mattress thrashers! :roll: Carl B.
