One summer I was laying a brick walkway by my back porch. I'd do a some every nice day. One hummingbird feeder is beside my screened in porch which has our outdoor table, etc. It is also beside a honeysuckle bush. Because of these things, they quickly got used to me. When they'd fly in to feed, I'd just stop laying brick and watch. One day I was standing and contemplating something and one landed on my arm. We looked each other over for a bit and he flew away.
Besides being awesome, I was totally amazed at how little I felt. It weighed so little and his feet were so small, it was hardly any pressure. Amazing little birds.
My Mother's husband has them land on his arm all the time because he spends so much time sitting still on the porch. I've had them come up to me an look me in the face before. But what I'd really like to do is hand feed them. That is supposedly easy to do.
We have glass all the way across the den wall that looks out on the patio , that's where our hummingbird feeders are . They come up to the glass and look inside . I think they are telling me something . So I go out and check the feeders and sure enough one will be sour or ants will be inside a feeder. I get so much pleasure watching one Ruby Throated male , sitting on his branch, keeping control of HIS feeder! He dive bombs when he sees another hummingbird get on His feeder. Fierce little boogers. We should all be so strong & brave.
