Why are there only female/immature hummingbirds at my hummingbird feeder?

In two years, I believe I have seen a male exactly once. However, I have seen females/immatures many, many times. Why would that be? (These are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.)

Marie, I think the ebird help and info is designed getting information about ebird and not for general bird inquiries. You can go to bird chat and get general information about birds and chat with others about question syou have in general.
Thanks

Marie, I don't have an answer, but just wanted to say I have the same situation. I have had hummingbird feeders in Florida, New Jersey, and New Brunswick (Canada) and I have NEVER seen a male at any of them!
