I live in the northern Adirondacks. So, I fill the Hummingbird feeder and it completely disappears during the night with feeder still in tact. Over and over. It's not leaking. What's doing it. Thanks!
YES! By god, I think you got it! Just looked it up and found plenty of confirming sites. 'Bats can easily drain a hummingbird feeder.' Thank you!
Well there you go. Good! You're welcome
Careful about where you put the bat-room, though.
Make sure you clean it well, even disinfecting it with vinegar, between fillings to prevent the spread of various diseases which can infect either species.
did not know about bats and sugar water.
Either did I — and I've read about bats in the northeast for years. I always thought it was the tropical bats that drank nectar. Interesting.
