    Our hummingbird finally returned. She's been busy bringing back fluff and adding it to her nest.

    Can't wait for the babies!

    love your hummingbird, where is she making the nest at so you can watch her???

    do you also have the hummingbird feeders

    (I want to get another hummingbird feeder but one that the bees don't get inside of it)

    any suggestions?

    We don't have hummingbird feeders but have LOTS of flowers. Several gardens worth.

    She has nested right above our patio table. We can sit in our chairs and look right up at her.

    How wonderful!! I have 3 feeders and about a dozen hummingbirds, but would love to watch them nest. They are so much fun to watch.

    Here's a link to the hummingbird feeder I like best:
    http://www.amazon.com/Glass-Hummingb...dp/B000HHOC3C/

    It also comes in a 30-oz size, similar price.

    It's glass, which I prefer to plastic, and there's no way bees can get to the food. I use a round toothpick to make sure the "flower" openings are clean and open for the hummers to get their beak through.

    Oh, and it doesn't leak!

    You are so lucky to be able to watch hummingbirds nest.

    Ditto. We have a lot of hummingbirds that come up to our feeders, but are not sure where they have nests. We see them perching on the power lines, but thats about it.
