I have about 50-70 babies and females left taking 1 gallon of nectar per day. The males have mostly moved on. Start with a small tube feeder and a holder; ss shown in this photo; you have to be patient and they will start come closer and closer in to the tube every minute or so, finally feeding constantly from the tube. Next, put some nectar in the palm of your hand. In this photo of the tube and the holder, I held a Canon 1DS with a Canon EF100 f/2.8 IS at f/2.8 Macro set to focus on a point where the hover to drink, then take the photo:

A very lucky shot by me of a Great Horned Owl – he/she “hooooawwd oootooo hoo hoo” and was answered almost every time, all night for several days now in a Black Walnut tree by my rear shed next to the forest; about 30-40 feet away. He is getting ready for a “long days night” of sleep in a fairly inconspicuous place. Im betting the crows find him/her today after the fog lifts:

One adult male last Thursday and one juvenile male during the rain storms last weekend. I got pretty good photo of each. They are one of our states most beautiful birds:
