I remember the first time I had seen a humming bird and it was actually at the kennedy space center when I was younger..I was shocked at how small but
how quick it was and it's color was almost shimmering..I know my neighbor has a hummingbird feeder next door and she says once and while she sees one
but I'm in the Northeast and I have yet to see one..have seen videos of people doing this and I think it is fascinating to see how quickly they

That was cool....my father used to feed hummingbirds and would have me put a red cap on and they would flutter around your face,you could
actually feel the wind from their wings.I feed them now,the other morning I went outside on my screen porch to drink my coffee and noticed that the
feeder was empty a hummingbird flew to it and proceeded to fly to were I was sitting and looked right at me and hovered there for about 30 seconds as
though he was telling me to refill the feeder,never had that happen before!Thanks for the video,I will try to get them to feed from my hand...you
never know it may work.
Well that video made my day to brighten it up!
I have had bear, deer, rabbits, even a eagle(come close for a dead squirrel), never could get a hummingbird that close except threw a window
feeeder. It still amazes me as to what wildlife will approach us when they are not threatened.
I think they have to be inter dimensional beings. I never see where they came from. I will just be outside minding my own business and sometimes if I
happen to be standing near something bright and red, there they are. When they decide to leave, good luck trying to see where they went off to. I'm
sure they just weave their own little wormhole and poof, there they go!
