Cute little Black-chinned 💜💜 Commonly asked questions:
1. "How long did it take for them to hand feed from you/how long did it take for them to land on your hand?" It really just depends on the bird. Some will hand feed right away and sit down right away while others will never even attempt to hand feed.
2. "How do you do this?" I stand by one of the most popular feeders in my yard with my hand near the base of the feeder. Sometimes if a feeder is empty then I'll take it down and stand in its place. Never take down all your feeders and force the birds to feed from you.
3. "Where can I get a handfeeder?" I get mine from hum-fi.com.
4. "Any tips for handfeeding?" Here is a good article - http://www.birdsandblooms.com/blog/5-easy-tips-hand-feed-hummingbirds/
