We have four feeders hanging in spring. Best plan is to hang multiple feeders out of view of each other.

It's attached to my window and that window is blocked so you can't see in or out - so nothing scaring them from it from the inside (plus one of the hummingbirds watches me and even will fly over and sit in a tree above me when I'm waiting for the senior van service - so they're not scared of me). I placed it back outside once they started to use the new feeder (it's about 5-6 feet away, not over my patio). Even when they drink the feeder on my patio dry quickly, don't want anything to do with the feeder attached to my window. Any ideas how to get them to use it?
