Mom and Dad have two hummingbird feeders at the house. One out front and one out back. Both can be seen while sitting on the porch. The hummingbirds seem to prefer the one out back. I had my 100-400mm lens with me so I setup my camera about 25 feet away so I wasn’t too close and scare them away. At first they would just swoop by the feeder but then they got comfortable with me and started to drink from it.
