Where we lived in West Virginia, we had an abundance of hummingbirds perched in our front yard trees; zooming back and forth to include under our porch roof; and we went through a lot of sugar water keeping them fed and readying them for their trip back south each year.
They would fly around us, at times hovering right in front of our faces as if checking us out. They knew we were not a threat and it was such a treat to have them each summer.
Now we live in Florida and we saw one last year that didn't hang around. We've put out feeders and all we seem to attract are ants. We so miss these little guys!!!!
