Wow He is very cool.... I miss that little guy.. I think he was here at my house for three winters.. I do wonder just what happened to him.
That white was the hardest thing I ever tried to shoot I think... Wasted a good half a 7DII on that bird lol

Nice one Rob... its nice that you guys get to experience what those of us farther north have to deal with about everyday. I don't know how the animals do it.. I would have died living outside last night.

That is very cool and great shot. Had a leucistic ruby-throated hummingbird in our area in 2014.

Black oil sunflower seed.. I buy it by the 50lbs bag... just normal seed around here.. I was talking about him at the time I did the video and just wanted to show how he was very into coming to hand. I find if birds read you as non threatening they just fly in and land... he became much like a dog and would come from where ever he was.. that’s why I call him special.
