We're humming now!

Yesterday, I only heard a hummingbird zipping through my yard.

This morning, I saw a new one at my feeder: a Rufous hummingbird. Again, it was around 7:30 am, and then nothing for the rest of the day (Yesterday, that is.).

Le Sigh!

At least I know that they're actually here. Unfortunately, they seem to completely ignore the plants on my deck for the time being. These are supposed to be really attractive to hummers! I'm feeling grumpy about it. I'm also not clear why they aren't sticking around after a sip or two. Is it a problem if I have a finch feeder 10 feet away?

Any suggestions?
