Hovering Butter Butts

Since we have been putting out Jim's Birdacious Bark Butter regularly, we have had regular visits by Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Orange-Crowned Warblers, and these Yellow-Rumped Warblers. We stuff the bark butter into the holes in this log. Despite the fact that the warblers are able to cling to the side of the log, they seem to prefer to peck at the food while hovering like a hummingbird. We found out today that Wild Birds Unlimited has discontinued the Bugs and Berries version. Hopefully the "plain" version will continue to attract the warblers for the rest of the Winter season.
