A wonderful week of hummers
Sorry, if this is a repeat. I posted this on Sept. 9th, but I do not see it . . .
Wow, I have seen many more hummers this week. What fun! I have a window feeder in kitchen, and I was washing another feeder. A hummer was feeding outside,and was going crazy. She was buzzing around the outside feeder, and darting near the window, looking in? I had the feeder inside in her full view,and it appeared she was trying to get to it - what do you think? Later, I went outside,near the same window feeder, and held up a mini feeder in my outstretched hand. I stood still, like a statue, and she buzzed all around,behind my head, neaqr the mini feeder, back to ther window feeder, but just would not stop and feed from my hand. I have seen some of your videos/pictures of hummers feeding from your hand. How do you do this? I was so excited, then my husband spotted me standing there, and asked me if I realized how silly I looked! I laughed and told him he just does not understand the fascination and love of hummers. I will try again, and maybe my husband can snap a picture. I am really enjoying having more than one or two hummers, and I will enjoy them for another month, I think. Hummers, welcome to Baton Rouge!
