Thank you JW, Nobi, Judy and Stan. I'm so glad everyone's enjoying this as much as I did seeing him wrestle with this hummingbird feeder. And for all wondering he never fell once. Merely balanced back to the beam and away he went after a good long "drink"!! Those little toes they have are amazing!

Phillip, you're so right - there is no limit to their acrobatics when it comes to food!! I've never seen one this thirsty though LOL!!!

Carol, he had no problems getting down at all. Those little toes seem to be better than a prehensile tail!!! and stickier than super glue!!!
