I was collecting seeds, when a strong buzzing sound scared me!! I look up and it's a beautiful hummingbird! Stared at me for 5 seconds and I was like where's my phone!!!! On the porch of course Dang it!!! So now I'm on my porch hoping it will come by. Should I water the plants to attract it Knowing me i probably scared it away Anybody ever get that close to a Hummer?

Yes, right after my mother passed away, I had one in the backyard and it flew in place right in front of my face just looking at me. I believe it was a message telling me that she was in Heaven and was okay. It is said that birds deliver messages from up above. The wings were going so fast I barely saw them.

They will fly really close to us and what a nice way to let you know your mother is okay now.

Miracles is God working anonymously! He sends us messages in many different ways that we just KNOW! He's an awesome God and loves us so very much that He sent His Son to die for our sins so we could be forgiven and go to heaven when we die. Isn't that amazing! all we have to do is BELIEVE in Jesus Christ and ask forgiveness of our sins! Talk to Him like you do your very best Friend

We had some flowers on our front porch awhile back that attracted them. It was always so nice to see.

I have only ever had one hummer at this house. My grandmother had them all the time and so did my folks. I need to figure out how to move my red honeysuckle to take it with me. They like that.

We have no hummingbirds in the nature in France, or those who escaped from a birdcage. I never saw one in my garden. I have had a nightingale : it was singing so well, that it awoke me several times.

Yes, we used to have a hummingbird feeder right outside our window and when we would go out to replenish it a hummingbird would be right by us just waiting. They are so much fun to watch the way their hover and drink the water inside the feeder. I love watching them as they are also very pretty birds.

So remember to always put your cellphone in your pocket so you can take a picture of the hummingbird when it comes again , for us to take a look at the said bird . I haven't seen one in real life yet .

I did once. I was sitting on my porch and we had morning glories by the steps. Something small kept buzzing around my face and I was swatting at it but it wouldn't go away. I thought it was a wasp at first. When I looked closer, it was a tiny baby hummingbird.

Humming birds are so beautiful. I have a video of one on my phone but I don't know how to upload it here or if we can upload videos. I will have to look into that tomorrow. If I can figure it out I will post it here.

The only close that I have been with the duo visiting me is about a few inches (less than a feet) and that too when I am behind the glass panel of the window. They never stay on the sill if the see anyone approaching them

@Rosekitty let me clarify as I sense, you have started to interpret the duo to be humming birds. We do not find any humming birds here at my part of the world. The only one I saw was in the zoo and definitely some on Discovery and magazines. Yes the duo that visit me are now parents. 4 baby birds and the duo. I just love them.

peacocks on top of our roof
Should it only be a hummer when I have scores of birds visiting our garden which has been designed with them in mind? I just picked this one not knowing which to choose
