Hummingbird Channel

In June of 2006 I was replacing empty feeders with clean ones and this hummingbird landed on the feeder as I was carrying it to the pole. I stopped instantly and stood perfectly still because motion will scare hummingbirds away. From this came the clips you will see in this video. It would eat from any feeder or cut flower that I would offer. Someone suggested I try to feed it directly from my palm and success came the first day I tried. This hummingbird continued this behavior until his 2006 migration to Central America. In April of 2007 he returned to the same little plot of land in Louisville, Ky for more of the same behavior.

    Any suggestions for more light on the hummers? Will a flat aluminum reflector work?

    In Quebec, Canada, in the forests of the north where the food is sparse, Hummingbirds fight each other for the feeder all day long. Take a look at these "Monsters of Grace" :
