Hummingbirds are one of the most fascinating creatures I have ever seen. They fly at amazing speeds, they hover in one position easily and they seem very curious.
The best way to observe these marvelous creatures is to attract them to your back yard and even to your very own back porch. The way to do that is to find out where to get the best hummingbird feeders you can find.
I have had feeders in my yard for several years now and look forward to the annual migration to have the birds show up and start feasting on the feeders that I have in my yard. Most of my feeders are placed just off of the back porch so that I can stand in the window and watch the birds without being seen.
However, some years I make it a habit to stand real close to the feeders and let the birds get used to me being around. This allows me sometimes to get great views of the birds from a close distance. Again, the only thing that I can say is - fascinating. This is a marvelous creature that everyone should be viewing if they have the opportunity.
