Coming and going away

You're right they tend to take something and fly away and then come back - not eating on the feeder

Coming and going

You are right, they rarely hang around.

I assume it must be a safety strategy as it must use considerable energy to fly to the feeder grab something then fly away to eat it then repeat the process many times.
