Kathy, your blog is a go-to for me when I am in need of information for a Master Gardener talk. You keep us informed about what others are discovering, as well as what is going on in your own yard--and ours!  
A huge thank you!  
Now I have to go out and put some rotten bananas in the garden. Who knew?

Last year, I had an onslaught of flies all over my feeders, keeping the hummers away.  
Any way to keep houseflies away?

Hi Kathy, I loved my hummingbirds, I've made what I call hummingbird stations, where it looks like a birdhouse but it has a platform for the hummers hopefully to nest on. It's surrounded by natural wood with moss that the hummers use to make their nests. Do you think they'll use it? I would love to send a pic but i can't on here, please email me and i will send you a pic to see what you think.

So good to hear about the study and critters that live in them.

Thank you for the tip about bananas. I will do that tonight because there are Annas flying around my front door apparently looking for insects. They are flying above my front door for over an hour without stopping. There is a feeder close by. This is the 2nd time I have observed this. That time the bird flew in that same area for approximately 3 hours. Is this normal behavior?

Hummingbirds are from heaven, divine beings.
