Best Wearable Hummingbird Feeder

A Truly Unique Hummingbird Feeder!

.

Yes, I said a Wearable Hummingbird Feeder!

When I saw this feeder, I didn’t know whether to laugh or be impressed.  But no matter how you look at it, it’s definitely unique.

It is based on a full-face shield with a miniature hummingbird feeder built into it on the inside. That means the hummingbirds feed right in front of your eyes.  Just check out this video.  It shows pictures from both the inside and outside of this wearable hummingbird feeder:

Come on, it might be a little strange, but ya gotta admit, it’s also  kinda cool!

Hummingbirds And Butterflies

June 18, 2009

Hummingbirds and butterflies are two of my favorite summer visitors.  That makes it double the pleasure, double the fun, when I see both at the same time.

Hey Butterfly! What are you doing at my feeder?

Okay, I guess we can share.

Guess you’re full up, huh? See ya!

A Southern Hummingbird

June 1, 2009

Yes, I know that’s not the correct name for this hummingbird.

Ruby Throated Hummingbird sips nectar from Alabama Crimson Tide Honeysuckle.

It’s a Ruby Throated Hummingbird, but I call it a Southern Hummingbird for a couple of reasons. The first and most obvious reason is because, well hey! We’re in the south!

The second reason is because this particular hummingbird is enjoying a sip of nectar from an Alabama Crimson Tide Honeysuckle blossom.  Even if you’re not a BAMA football fan, I think you can appreciate that this is a lovely colored honeysuckle.  I think it looks especially pretty in the golden evening sunlight.

So when it comes to honeysuckle, I say:

ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE

Roll Tide!

The Hummers Are Here

April 23, 2009

I love to watch hummingbirds.  It’s always a thrill when I see the first one in the spring.  I can’t remember when I first saw one this year and got the feeder hung up, but they’ve been here at least a couple of weeks. 

I just happened to be fairly closeby with a camera when I saw one visiting the honeysuckle nectar bar.

And here’s a little closer shot…

It’s one of my ambitions to someday get a really nice, sharp clear picture of a hummingbird.

But for now it’s just nice to see them flitting about.

Yesterday’s Visitor

April 30, 2008

I’ve seen the little hummingbirds enjoying nectar from the honeysuckle blooms, but yesterday was the first time I saw one go to the feeder this year.

I can sit at our dining room table and watch these little jewels flitting about. They always make me smile.
