Hummingbird Swing

[ Edited ]

I bought a hummingbird swing recently and hung it near one of my hummingbird feeders.  It took a few days, but the hummingbirds use it frequently.  I love watching them on it.  It's on my front porch so they are closer to me than they are when they're perching in the trees. 

 

I ordered it from Amazon.  It's the Songbird Essentials Copper Hummingbird Swing.  I took these pictures this moring.  One is of the swing.  They're usually facing me, but I had my phone with me this mornig when they were the other way.  One is at the feeder.  The red bead attracts the hummers.

@Lilysmom   I think it would be a great gift!  I'd never heard of them until I happened to see it on Amazon.  Our hummingbirds usually leave about the first week of October.  I plan to leave mine up though.  The reviews on Amazon said that other birds use it, too.

@NickNack , yes, I will put that on my wish list and get it next time I order.  Hoping it is on the Canadian site.  One of my feeders is just below my living room window so it will be a good spot for it.

 

Our hummers leave mid September.  

 

My gardening friend is hard to buy for so this is a great idea!  LM

Re: Hummingbird Swing

I’ve seen that locally and was tempted.  But my feeders have resting places for them while they feed and things nearby on which to rest when not feeding.  BUT this I can hang  near my chair on the porch and enjoy some company with coffee in the morning.  I may pick up one while I’m out today.

@esme   My feeders have perches, too, but they are really enjoying this swing.

Re: Hummingbird Swing

I have a wire Welcome sign that the hummers sit on all the time.
