This would be a great research project if it hasn’t been done before. Wish I were back in college for this opportunity.
So, the other day my wife bought a potted citronella plant for our back deck. Our place is along the Snake River & a spring channel runs through the backyard. We get a few wks of mainly evening time mosquitoes, starting about now. She placed the plant near my hummingbird nectar feeder. And, for two days, no hummers! In fact, one came last evening, like it was going to feed & immediately turned & took off. And for no apparent reason.
This afternoon, I moved the plant that was 4 ft from the feeder to about 15 ft away & within an hour, hummingbirds are back. One just visited again, after our rains. Has anyone else noticed that citronella may also keep hummingbirds away?!
Sorry about the typo. Red-eyed indeed!
Seen early this afternoon, Birding Island South in Payette County, between noon and 2 p.m. north of the parking lot at the edge of the first pond to the west. Saw twice. Singing. Have video of poor quality, and good audio. eBird says this is unreported which is why I’m sharing it.
Iost 30 pounds since trying this umbrella moves around too much i Will try wrapping handle tight fitting jacket is key
Great tip! I’d been toying with how to keep the glasses dry while juggling the brellie.
Birding in the rain hands free .take a long handled umbrella and fầirly snug fitting jacket take handle and insert behind neck in jacket keeps you and binnocs dry
