  1. We’ve seen hummingbirds visit our balcony garden planter twice. It was exciting. I’ve had to stop filling the bird feeder in the backyard. Something tiny is eating the suet from the squirrel proof bird feeder. I suspect chipmunks.

    1. You can try a hummingbird feeder in your balcony. They like the bright red ones. Just make sure to change the sugar solution often. This time of the year, it is too hot for suet. I’ve seen black flies, wasps and yellow jackets go after suet when it is hot out. I’ve only seen one dragonfly this year. My pond is overgrown with weeds and I can’t get close to it to see the frogs and dragonflies.
