I have heard that you need more than one feeder or food source to consistently 
attract hummingbirds.  Do you have two sources of food for them or is my 
information incorrect?

Thanks

For a while the only evidence I had that hummingbirds were around was that the 
nectar level would drop in the feeders. However, woodpeckers like to drink the 
nectar too. But since my monarda started blooming I've been seeing them on a 
more regular basis and the past few days I've seen two at a time, chasing each 
other. I haven't seen an adult male for a few days. A hummingbird moth has 
joined in the monarda celebration.
