Today I learned a possible why as to humming birds not utilizing a feeder in my front yard. I tried several different approaches to enticing birds to the feeder. None was successful. But this morning reading an article on why hummingbirds may be avoiding one yard but not another. One of the reasons is that hummingbirds do not like the sounds of wind chimes. The randomness and sometimes loud chiming repulses them. And sure enough, right below the feeder is where I located the windchimes in my front yard. So now I will need to relocate the feeder to another area of my yard. Out of sight of the feeder in the back yard as my humming bird there is very territorial and will claim the 2nd feeder it he sees it.
There is no rest for the wicked if you are a homeowner.
UPDATE: A week after i moved the chimes I still had no birds. Thinking perhaps the birds could not see the feeder because of numerous trees around it I decided to relocated it. So I moved it to a more open area that is still mostly shaded. That was 2 days ago. This morning I note a hummingbird feeding. Point of interest, it is a different species from the bird in the back yard.

Don't even know. I learn a lot of things every day you know, so i can't even say what exactly was the most valuable here. I guess that we all gain some experience every day you know. In diferent areas. The most valuable thing for me is that i have finally known how to do a checkered floor because i have always wanted to have on at my house, because, well i am actually i huge fan of Twin Peaks and want to create something like in black lodge. So i guess for me this is a valuable experience. That's the case
