So you need to hang the "It's manly - but I like it too!" soap? Never heard of that before.

We have blazing stars blooming out along the town roads, klm. I should keep an eye on them to see if the hummers like them! It would be a plus if they provided a little nectar for your visitors. But regardless, the birds will probably ignore your flowers once they find the bounty of the feeders.
The store I went to yesterday only had 2 double hooks left. I'm not sure if the hummers will like the gay feather but there are plenty of other trumpet like flowers around the feeder. Haven't seen a hummer nor any orioles in a couple days. I think their gone now.
