And So It Starts...
There were 5 hummers on this feeder when I started focusing the camera. The more feeders you set out the more hummingbirds will come. I was told this years ago and its true. We set out three now on the back deck. Its not uncommon to see 25-30 birds when they are buzzing around. In June there are usually just 4-5 of them. In July the population grows from fleged young birds to now carefree adults. By the end of July into August, you can pick this one off its hook and hold it while sitting in the bench and they will come feed from it while you balance it on your hand. Sometimes they land on a shoulder or head. The neighbors love coming over and sitting on the deck in the evening.
