OH MY!!!!

This is so special I totally enjoyed this and E-Mailed it out to some friends...

Since I have a hummingbird feeder gotta love it when all 20+ come to feed and when the feeder runs low, they come within 10" of my face to let me know they want more food!!!

So cute, and I can actually hear them -- they sound like a jet with those wings, didn't know it was only the females that had certain abilities though, so interesting...Loved this article and will save it...

In fact, gotta go feed "My girls" when the feeder gets low and they zoom me, when I take the feeder to the kitchen sink they actually come over the top of the house to peek at me through the window...

Also, what is so funny, one (know this is a female) sits in the tree and protects her "feeder" she waits for another hummingbird to come to feed then chases it off.

Guys please take a peek at this Video, there is a short ad first, but worth the wait and the article is entirely special!!!

Thanks so much for this Cher!
