I haven't seen any hummingbirds yet, but I may have if I wasn't being lazy and put the feeders out :laughing:.

I did just plant some petunias, so maybe they'll come out.

I always thought that hummingbirds fed off of plants but the one segment of them eating insects was pretty spectacular! I never thought the ate insects. :shrug:

Hazel (and the rest) I just finished watching the entire episode - well worth the time to see it! Well, done. If time is a factor, open the link and just watch 5-10 mins at a time.....if you like hummers, you will love this video.
