Rancho Palos Verdes, California, is a suburban city south of Los Angeles.
Part of the city overlooks the Pacific Ocean and Santa Catalina Island-- twenty-six miles away.
I tried one of these feeders and planted all kinds of Hummingbird "attracting" plants, and have seen a total of one Hummingbird. And, that is in 12 years! You are very lucky.
Within 1 hour after putting 2 feeders from petsmart up, I have around 8 hummingbirds stopping by. They do not stick around too long because the sugar level is only 1/2 in the container and the rest of the sugar water on the top of the long container. This is a major major mistake because this is the first time I put the feeders up. I then pour all of sugar water down in the container then the hummingbirds stick around much longer; but not as long as 10 minutes like on youtube clip because this is beginning of spring 2011 and they prefer natural nectar flower over my feeders. But after doing some research, I think they will come around more as soon as the natural supply diminishes.
