Welcome Blog Party Ladies and Gents!

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.

  4. I'd be excited about the hummers eating out my hands too. Kudos to you! And I'm going to try your idea of holding the feeder. ;o)

  5. OMG! They land in your hand!!! We have 3 hummer feeders and I just LOVE watching them. We usually eat lunch outside just so we can see the hummers and the rest of the birds. The hummers are always dive bombing each other. Thanks for the great post!

  6. I don't think anyone will tire of seeing your hummingbirds! In my post, I mentioned my sister's feeders and the marvel of the these darling creatures. I might even go over there to take some pictures and post them next week, so there will be two of us that obsess over hummingbirds!LOL! Happy Wednesday!

  12. Hey Cindy
    my Grand passed away a couple of years ago. She was the one who did the writing.
    Grandpa has become a bit grumpy since her passing.
    I love him so. He is the one who walked me down the isle.
