I thought I would share something that I have been enjoying all summer…all the hummingbirds we have attracted to our home. We put up three different feeders, two by the house, and one behind our shed by the garden. All three are regularly emptied.
This one hangs 6 inches from our kitchen window, so we are able to view them extremely close up. They are not shy at all! While sitting in the kitchen, we can hearing their squeaking (which reminds me of a mouse) and their buzzing wings.
As you can see, they are squabbling with each other, which is typical from what I’ve learned. All that are in this video are female (I counted 4), but we have 2-3 males around also. They tend to like the other feeder.
Surprisingly I find it very peaceful to watch them, despite their sporadic behavior. I love to sit out on our back porch and have them zoom around 4 feet from me!
P.S : This is also the first video I have ever uploaded to YouTube, which is surprising for me, since I am a software developer!
