Ron likes to sit on the back deck and read the paper after work. We have more hummingbirds than ever before! We decided to try holding the feeder. My gardening and birding books have acticles and pictures of people hand feeding the hummingbirds.
It was really funny to have them flying all over me. Ron and I both held the feeders. The viedo of me was too long to post. They landed on my hands with such a light touch, and I could feel the wind from their wings.
We are going to try it with the grandkids next, to see if they can hold the feeders, not have them flock to us when we hold sugary treats.
