Creative Hummingbird Feeders Designed For Closer Observance

Hummingbirds are known for the spectacular birds of their nature. They are famous for their ability to make a humming noise by flapping wings, and they weigh less than a nickel.

The migration of hummingbirds is usually triggered by the change in daylight duration, in the abundance of flowers, nectar, and insects, and also instinct. They spend their wintertime in Central America or Mexico, and also the north in the southern US, and western states to their home grounds. During spring, they would fly further up north.

However, not everyone has the luck to spot them due to their presence in only certain states. But now is the time for hummingbird enthusiasts to get their feeders out and ready cause here comes the hummingbirds.

These bird enthusiasts tend to get really creative when it comes to attracting these beautiful creatures closer to their sight. Nevertheless, some just take creativity to the next level. If you prefer to give their privacy and observe them from afar there are lovely designs of feeders to put up in your garden too.

One man from Lyons, Colorado had attached plastic feeders to his glasses, so he could attract these creatures closer and observe them at a more clear sight. The whole moment these wonderful creatures of nature chirped happily while feeding themselves from the feeders, this man stood completely still but broke into a smile later.

This man was not the only one to take the creativity of feeders to a new level. A few years ago, Spencer Staley designed a feeder hat that feeds hundreds of birds in a small amount of time with seven feeders attached to it. Basically, he turned himself into a human-hummingbird feeder.

Another man did something similar but with just three feeders attached to his cap.

If you wonder about their eating methods, hummingbirds always get hungry due to their fast metabolism rate. Even though their diet is mostly made up of sweet nectar, they also do eat insects and spiders.
