I have read that you can gradually decrease the amount of sugar in the nectar after the hummers start visiting the feeder.  The article said they will continue to come at a ratio of even 1/9.

That's interesting, we'll have to try decreasing. We've always used 1/4 ratio.

I am carrying my camera outside with me every time I go out and it appears the birds can smell it as they all disappear!  I did get a picture of a hummer on a branch, but he was so far away he looked like a pod on the tree.  :mad:
