    We've had the feeders out for a couple of weeks now and today we finally got our first two Hummingbirds at the feeder. My goal, this year, is to get them to eat directly out of my hand. We'll see.

    Hey Ed, I've got several at my feeders here in Georgia. One is much larger than the others. But my favorite is a small blue and green bird that has a bright red chest. My that bird is beautiful. I have a busy street right in front of my house and I'm about 60 feet off that road but the vehicles make them jumpy. I sit in the swing which is five feet away from the feeder while they feed but can't get any closer. Jackie B.

    We've had them hanging around the 3 feeders for the last week or so, here in Dayton, Ohio.

    Towards the end of last season I had two of them that would eat from a 3" red plastic bottle lid that I was holding in my hand. Hopefully, this year, they'll eat directly from my hand.

    A minute after midnight on New Year's, you got a hummer? Right out of your hand?

    They've been here for a while, but it's warmer in Texas


    But those little guys have a real sense of where they are and a good memory, my wife puts the feeders away in the winter, but in the spring when they first come back they will hover where the feeders used to be like they are looking for them
