    I couldn't figure out why my hummingbird feeder was emptying so fast. Sure those little guys have high metabolisms, but they are tiny and don't drink THAT much.

    For those of you who are suspecting that this isn't a hummingbired, you are correct. This is a Gila Woodpecker (Melanerpes uropygialis) enjoying my hummingbird nectar.
