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!

@Joeblow,
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!

Careful about where you put the bat-room, though.

@ENSTEPH,
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.

@farmerman,
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.
