In 2012 we put our our first Hummingbird feeder ... spent quite a bit of time throughout the next week just sitting watching it, camera in hand ... our first Hummer (and currently the only sighting) was a female Rufous Hummingbird ... then the Anna's took over ... later in the month put out a second feeder, bowl-style, and up higher ... it's taking the hummers longer to find and use this feeder.
