Feeder overrun by vicious hummingbirds

Well, seeing another neighbor across the hill’s success (in Sunshine), we put up a hummingbird feeder of our own. It was a resounding success, with up to 8 of the birds around the feeder at a time, of 3-4 different species (Rufous, ruby, and another few).

They go through an entire feeder every day, and will hover in front of your face if their feeder is not promptly refilled. The rufous hummingbirds (female, male is less aggressive) do not tolerate any other species on the feeder at the same time.

The cats are quite annoyed, and are hoping the window develops a hole sometime soon.
