Since seeing the large female as reported on 09/04 I decided to put the Aspects Highview feeder in the Frontyard near the bedrooms. I had a hanger that my husband put in the ground. I came inside to see if the large female would notice it. I could see her in our neighbor's Frontyard. She pivoted & turned while zooming towards Aspects Feeder. She took her time for about 1 minute. Sitting & sipping in the shade. The adult Male Ruby is still in our backyard 2day w Juvenile's. I have 3 extra feeder's in the backyard & side but they all seem 2 all like the pinched waist 4-port Perkey-Pet feeder.I did notice a juvenile who tried 2 use the females feeder. She lowered her head & moved forward w her long bill as if 2 say 'If you come any closer you will have to deal with this buddy (meaning her very long bill or sword). The hovering juvenile will usually 100% of the time back off & let her eat in peace. She really guards this feeder.
