Befriend the little birds
A simple life hack from Pat…
Here is a life hack or handy tip from my childhood friend, Pat Barber who lives in Maryland, USA.
How to keep ants from invading Hummingbird feeders.

We have several bird feeders in our garden, and keep a stock of wild birdseed to fill up the feeders once a week.
Within minutes of me filling the feeders up, they are chattering away. They seem to know when I am going to fill them too!

The birds of hope are everywhere – just listen to them sing!
