A Bird In The Hand. . . . . .

Posted: Tue Sep 21, 2010 3:09 pm

This woman lives in a Hummingbird fly zone. As they migrated, about 20 of them were in her yard. She took the little red dish, filled it with sugar water and this is the result.
The woman is Abagail Alfano of Pine, Louisiana - she had been studying them daily and one morning put the cup from the feeder (with water in it) into her hand. Since they had gotten used to her standing by the feeder they came over to her hand.


She says in touching they are as light as a feather. Abagail also said, 'if she had known her husband was taking pictures she would have put on makeup.'

OMG! That's just wonderful!

I remember going camping as a kid and having Canadian gray jay birds take food right out of my hands, but to have a hummingbird do it would be the ultimate thrill.

Thank you for posting these pics! I am going to save them and email them to my mom, she's a hummingbird fanatic! Very Happy
