We tried to see how friendly ours were tonight. DH held the feeder...after a thorough investigation, one all but sat and drank so hopefully we will be able to get them to come really close this year

Thanks, I am glad you guys are enjoying them Those first were actually the worst of them that I took while lying on the hammock in the yard - I have some really close ones. My neighbors I am sure thought I was insane sitting up on the shelf of our deck with my camera, tripod, the whole setup for an hour or so to take pics of the little guys. I will be doing that periodically throughout the summer I am sure. Here is one of the closer ones - love the tongue sticking out.

I'm so bummed! No hummingbirds yet, and I love them! I had one little girl last year who had a nest up in the tree above my window. I haven't seen any yet. Though, the bees are getting into my feeder...that bums me out! I didn't even see any bees last year, now I do. Boo.

You can have some of mine! They're not so cute when they're almost attacking you! It's not unusual for them to still be feeding when I'm taking the feeders down. Have almost carried more than one in the house!

We have one that is very protective of the feeder. It will perch close by and as soon as another comes by it will swoop down on it.

Bringing this old thread back up. I've had a Rufous hummingbird around this winter and kept a feeder going for it. But today I saw a hummingbird checking out my plum tree (which isn't blooming yet, as far as I can tell). I don't think that hummingbird looked like the Rufous. Has anyone spotted any possible migrants yet? All I've got blooming is a rosemary bush, Carolina Jessamine and Arizona Ash (bees go to that, but not hummingbirds).
