Beltsville Library Garden: where are the hummingbirds? Campsis grandiflora 'Morning Calm' and Monarda fistulosa

And the bees; where are the bees. These two plants are normally magnets for hummingbirds and insects of all sorts. There just seems to be something that just doesn't work for insects and birds here. A robin nested here earlier this year but I've yet to see a hummingbird and butterflies are scarce. l expect that if I added water it would help but then there would be mosquitos to worry about. Bt I guess.
