We love our hummers. The feeder is right at my sewing room window and we
have a straightened out vinyl-covered coat hanger beside it for a hummer
rest spot. We've enjoyed watching all manner of courting. We've seen the
male hummer bring a baby hummer to learn to perch and drink. Ahh. So
precious. One year we had 2 females who chased off all the guys and enjoyed
the feeder without parenting or macho displays.
Ours are quite arrogant. Well. Maybe not arrogant but certainly
demanding. If the feeder is getting low, they will come around the house to
the kitchen window and stall, making their presence known and politely
suggest that we need to get going with their dinner. Polly
I was amazed at how they all seemed to get along. Ours are very aggressive
and fight for the feeder, only one at a time is allowed it seems. They also
do the hey where's the food thing here. In the spring if I do not get it up
in time they come and hang in front of the window. This spring I was not in
that room so it came to my office windows. Smart little buggers they are.
