Fearless hummingbird

Post by valerie »

A while back I had to set up a scarecrow (briefly seen

at the end of this video) to keep the birds from roosting

in the tree at night and leaving their big, black splat

behind on my deck and patio table. Works perfectly.

What's really interesting is that it is almost directly under

my hummingbird feeder, yet they couldn't give a fig

about it, and still feed. (I'm not askeered of your stupid ol'

scarecrow!) They are amazing. They KNOW what they

can do flight-wise I guess.

Last place we lived hummingbirds would nest in our trees. One time there was tiny baby bird and I wanted to get a real close up picture but mama bird would have nothing of it. She couldn't do much but buzz (humm) me.

In fear for my life I left the little one alone.

I think it's because your scarecrow just looks drunk, not scary.:wah:

Well, if that's the case, then how does the drunk scare off the much bigger birds? (Not

sure what kind they are, but judging from the splat, they're robins or starlings or

crows or something)

Hmm, now that I think of it, the hummers have seen me out there with a glass or two

of champagne from time to time... ;)

Hummers don't seem to be bothered by people close to the feeders.

Our feeder is within four or five feet of out patio furniture, and they are never fazed by us sitting there.

We have even had a couple of them fly right up to us for a closer look.

When the grandkids are out with us, however, the hummers keep a much safer distance.

A hummer lit on my daughter's arm once but wouldn't hang around long enough for me to get my camera.

The hummingbirds here get right in my face and give me a good lecture when their feeder needs refilling.
