Welcome Feathered Friends Blog Party Gals! I have posted 3 times in a row about these sweet hummingbirds so if you are a regular reader of The Vintage Vignette please bare with me as I discuss them once again (for the last time, I promise!) for the Feathered Friends blog party! Please stop over at The Shabby Chic Cottage as well to see what other birdie treasures the ladies are posting.
It all started when I hung up 7 new feeders in my backyard. Within hours my backyard was swarming with hummingbirds! I'm talking about 15 to 20 at a time! As I sat out there with them each day in the mornings and evenings they had gotten quite used to me. One day I decided to take one of the feeders in my hands and sit in the chair to see what they would do. They began flying over to me, landing right in my hand and feeding! I have been doing it twice a day ever since. They have become so accustomed to me that I can stand right next to them like I did to take these pictures. Quite an amazing experience indeed.
