It all started with a housewarming gift...

Approximately six years ago friend gave me a very pretty hummingbird feeder as a housewarming gift.

Fast forward to today and there are no fewer than a dozen assorted nectar, thistle, and seed feeders hanging in both the front and back yards of our home.

I truly believe decorative hummingbird feeders are the gateway drug to backyard birding addiction.

Not that I'm complaining at all. I love it!
Still a newbie but really excited to learn more as I navigate this forum.

Hello from Northern California, btw!

Hi kaysirota and a warm welcome from me too.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I hope to hear about all the birds you see when out and about.

How lucky you are to have hummers visiting you.... I can only dream of seeing them LOL.

Hi and welcome to the forum. It is amazing how one feeder can become many without us even realizing what we are doing.
