My last tidbit--most folks start with the inverted-bottle type feeder. There is a feeder called the HummZinger that looses the bottle entirely, giving you a much better chance of getting a shot of the bird rather than the equipment. Check out the link below and you'll see the benefit. They have a new HighView model that has a raised perch that gets the bird up away from the feeder. I have a few, and it is great fun to place two of these maybe 30--50 feet apart and watch a single dominant male try to "own" both of them. If only I had their energy and persistence!
