Finding the best birdfeeders

This year I decided that I was going to start feeding birds so that I could enjoy watching them from the serenity of my backyard. I decided that I wanted to attract several different kinds of birds, so I picked out a hummingbird feeder, as well as a couple of wild bird feeders. Shortly after putting them out, I started noticing a problem with a couple of them. The hummingbird feeder that I bought was a cheapo and didn't do a good job attracting the birds, and the wild bird feeder that I bought was impossible to keep the squirrels out of. I decided that I was going to take things up a notch so I decided to a little research to find thebest hummingbird feeders and the either a better wild bird feeder or a way to keep the squirrels out. What I found was completely shocking. There are so many different types of birds that I sort of became overwhelmed. I also discovered that I wanted to try to attract these lovely creatures even more than ever. For the hummingbirds, I decided to go with a lovely elegant feeder that had insect proof ports so that bees or ants couldn't get into the "nectar". For the wild birds, I decided to go with a great squirrel proof feeder, that literally outsmarts those little devils. So, if you want to start attracting these beautiful birds, I suggest that you read up on their migration habits and check out some of the latest in bird feeder technology.

I wrote about this too. Before I saw this I was already thinking about hummingbirds and putting up feeders. Decided I didn't need to add anything to my to do list.
