VIDEO ---> Five species share one feeder in Tucson.

We have thirteen feeders in our backyard and they are all busy with birds.

Here is an Aspects Excel feeder. I set up the tripod and video camera and let it record for 128gb/ several hours. The entire video is the same so I randomly selected about ten-minutes.

Birds seen: Anna's, Black-chinned, Broad-billed, Costa's and Rufous.
We also have Allen's and Rivoli's but not in the video

It starts with a feisty Rufous. At the 2:30 minute mark all food ports are being used my multiple species.

Nice video Douglas.

All my current feeders are high perch in design and are from Aspects. I have one high perch and a few humm blossoms and Gem feeders, all have the same perch design. Personally I like the design and the feeders. Aspects really stands behind their feeders, had an issue with a suction cup and they sent one out the same day!

I went to the page about nectar mixes on their site. They said: "The 16 oz pouch makes makes 64 fluid ounces of nectar- your typical juice bottle - just right for filling most feeders". Maybe in Arizona! I doubt I go through 64 oz all summer here in Delaware!

But it looks like good stuff - no red dye! I might order a high-top feeder from them.
