Very nice, Caryle! I had a feeder near the main feeding station that I shoot other birds at the front of my house and was wondering why I had no hummingbirds. I stumbled onto them in the REAR of the house. Seems they don't like a lot of "other bird" traffic. I moved the feeder to the rear and within minutes I had two or three hitting the feeder!

Interesting, Gary. We have several different feeders and lots of birds flying around but they do not seem to bother the hummers. We only get one or two hummers. We also have another location and only a hummingbird feeder but the bird does not come any more often. I guess it depends on the type of hummer.

Thanks for commenting.

Very nice! I like the third the best. We have very few Hummers in our area, but the few we have, we enjoy very much. Yesterday, a Sharp Shinned Hawk came to the birdbath for a drink and a female Ruby Throat pestered it until the Hawk left in frustration. By the way, your Hummer was a Rufous, was it not?

Thank you all for commenting. I do not know what kind of hummers they are. Some do have ruby throats. It depends on the lighting.
