    I thought it was to early but just had our 1st hummingbird fly into the back yard and checked out the feeder.It was not full but I just filled it up.

    Anyone else seeing any?

    Their a lot of fun to watch.We fill up four feeders in the backyard and we will have 5-10 pair coming in and out all day long.

    Cheap entertainment Kyle better go buy a feeder.:smile2:

    I didnt think they whould be that far north already..Thanks for the report.

    Thats right Ray.They are fighting little dudes.

    Once a pair select's a feeder they think it's only theirs...:smile2:

    Once they are here for a few weeks they get pretty tame and will come and hover 2' away from us while we are setting on the back deck.

    We have a big Mimosa tree in the yard that I brought back from Arkansas about 5 years ago, when they bloom, they're completely covered with pink blossoms, Humming birds and all kinds of butterflys just flock to it. My son has one in his back yard, when we were there last, it was just covered with big black winged with yellow spots butterflys, and about 30 or more Hummingbirds. We don't even put feeders up any more.

    I figured this was a thread about Humminbird fish finders. I was a little disappointed to read it was about birds! LOL :eek:oooh::crazy:

    I saw 2 of those on my boat yesterday. And one of the other kind flew across our deck on Saturday. We don't have feeders out and sightings here (my back yard) are pretty rare, but they are around.

    Misrepresentation of a concept (hummingbirds, THE bird) is not in itself a misconception, but it may produce one in certain individuals.

    I doubt THE bird (hummingbird, I.E. real bird with wings and feathers, not the mechanical piece of junk) was not intended to misrepresent this thread. I don't think the authors intent was to the goal of deceiving anyone.
