House Sparrows are a real nuisance sometimes. Good luck with the hummingbirds. I'm hoping to try Oriole feeders this year, but not for a couple months.

I actually get zero squirrels to my feeders, I have 1 seed feeder and 2 suet feeders. House sparrows figured out the suet feeders so I don't get nuthatches and woodpeckers either, but oh well. Putting out hummingbird feeders in a few weeks, hope to get luck with those!

I totally agree Ashley. I put it out for the woodpeckers and nuthatches, but the squirrels earn it. :)

I think if they are willing to work that hard for it, they deserve it :) Such funny little guys!
