I have a problem with a bully hummingbird that's always chasing the other hummers away. Is there anything I can do?

George: A bully hummingbird is usually the dominant male of the territory. In some cases, he will only allow "his" females and offspring to feed there. Give other hummers a chance to feed by putting up more sugar-water feeders. Place them as far away as possible and out of sight of the feeder that attracts the dominant hummingbird.
