How Not To Attract Hummingbirds

On her Facebook wall, Pecky Cox/As the Lake Churns posts: "I know better than feeding hummingbirds any more with new 'regulations' -- however I do do one feeder in Spring just to welcome our very tired friends back from such a long trip. I put it up a few days ago and NOTHING.. there is this beautiful red rubby (sp?) flying around and NOTHING.
