Hummingbirds and other birds

Posted by michiele z6, OKlahoma (My Page) on

I am new to the hummingbird feeders. My husband got me a nice one for Christmas so I am trying it out this spring. The feeder is one that has its own stand and then 3 blown glass feeders. Through the winter, I had a thistle feeder hanging from the hummingbird stand. I am wondering if I can leave the thistle feeder there or does it need to be moved? Will the finches scare off the hummingbirds and vice versa? Thanks for any help.

I usually move my seed feeders away from the hummingbird feeders. The hummers may run off the finches.
