This has been a great year for hummingbirds. I seem to have more than ever before. Their in-flight acrobatics are amazing to watch. It is especially thrilling when one hovers in front of your face. They seem to be very curious about us.
I provide a variety of natural food sources for these birds, crocosmia ‘Lucifer’, Bee Balm, Trumpet vine and more. They seem to like the Orange Jewelweed which grows in abandon everywhere.
I’ve tried various feeders and decided the absolute best design are the Hummzinger ones from Aspect. I only have one now but intend to get more for next year.
