Thank you all. Loren, try putting up a feeder and see if they come. That is what we did. After all, who ever heard of hummers in San Francisco?

I think I will try that this spring. I have heard that if you leave for a few days and they don't get fed, they can die. That's my only reason to not feed them.

I'm thinking that a 55 gallon humming bird feeder would be appropriate.

Loren,we travel a lot. Our feeders empty before we get back and the birds are fine. We just clean the feeder and fill it again.
good luck
