Default First Hummers

Better shots ahead, I need a little more practice. I just put up the feeder two days ago at our new home. I wasn't sure we had any hummers in the area but they are here so this will be fun. Hope to get a few good ones over the next week or two.

Not bad at all, dude! I put feeders out that past two years and go zilch so I decided not to put any out this year. Maybe. Sort of.

I'm with Gary on this Eric, I put out the juice and have only ever seen a bird twice (the same two days running) ever.

These are fine images....... great beginning

Nice Eric. I'm like the others, never have hummingbirds visit my back yard.

Both very good shots Eric
I am the same as the rest.
No Hummers in my Yard either
Not only in my back yard, but I have never seen one around here.

I thought hummies were everywhere. I use 3 1/2 water to 1 sugar and it seems to be the right amount. I did finally get a shot of the male but still no great ones.

That last one is very good, Eric. Almost as if you're improving as you go...
