Thanks Andee & Janie, they are pretty much around all day off an on and they are super friendly. I shot this out my open living room door from in the house. Sometimes I sit outside and wait for them though. I just hang a feeder and a hanging basket with red flowers and they come :) What kind of lens do you have Andee? You can actually get quite close to them. I've had them land on the feeder while I'm holding the feeder! They are small but fearless and curious.
We have three so far, just arriving! I love to just sit on my deck and watch them fight over the feeders. Seems that no matter how many feeders I put out, they want to control them. THANK GOD THEY ARE SO SMALL!!! Could you imaging if they were a larger species with that personality? We would all have to wear protective gear to step outside.
@ Christina, they are so much fun. Thanks for sharing that awesome video! Today my husband rescued one that flew into our living room from the open door. Later in the evening one landed on the bill of his hat! I can't help but wonder if it was the little girl he rescued. We have a bumper crop of the feisty little creatures this year. We usually start out with 2 or 3 but we have 7 that I could count so far. I think it is 5 girls and two boys. I may have to get another feeder. @ Bradford your hummers are in good hands, we feed them well, hang baskets of flowers for them with the sugar water and we have flowering trees and bushes in the yard for them. :) They must have been well cared for this winter by you since we have so many this year!
