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! #963265
