How far apart should I place my hummingbird feeders?
Over the years I have had several hummingbird feeders in my backyard during the summer months. During the past week I have noticed about 3 different species in my yard. They have been in a constant aerial battle. So constant that I have to leave the area to them in fear of them diving into my face. They are so fast. I have 4 feeders about 20 feet apart. I am thinking of moving one or two of them. There is one bird (a Ruby throat) who sits on a nearby hibiscus branch to protect his feeder. I am afraid that one day I'll find a dead bird on my porch. Any ideas?
