I don't have a feeder but I have honeysuckle and there are still hummingbirds in my yard in San Antonio. My neighbor near Corpus Christi has a feeder and I watched probably 20 or so of them flying around her front and backyard. Ya'll are right about them being so territorial. One spent hours guarding the feeder from a few others who were trying to get to the nectar. It was awesome to watch their little "dance".

I have HB feeders in my yard too, and your right FM-they are a joy to watch. I get up waaaaay earlier than I need to, just to watch them joust. They are one of those little "miracles" of nature that I never tire of.

.........................I'm trying to think of a way to work a chupacabra into the conversation, but right now I've got nothin'!!!
