Everyone loves to see hummingbirds, but it can be difficult to spot these fast-moving, elusive creatures. Now, a bird-loving inventor has fixed that problem by creating a hummingbird feeder hat that brings the birds to you.
A Fantastic Feeding Invention
This fantastic contraption consists of a hummingbird feeder attached to a ballcap. The video shows the inventor walking around outside wearing his feeder hat. Dozens of hummingbirds visit the feeders, bringing their bright colors, whirring song and stunning beauty.
Seeing these lovely creatures up close is an amazing experience.
Hummingbirds Are Big Eaters
The simple feeders use a sugar solution to attract the birds. All you have to do is fill them with a feeding solution, and the birds will flock to you.
Hummingbirds eat a surprising amount of food for their small size. That’s because they’re constantly in motion. They burn many calories flying from flower to flower.
Hummingbird food is easy and inexpensive to make. All you need is sugar, water and the desire to nourish these beautiful creatures.
Hummingbird Feeder Hats Go High Fashion
The hummingbird hat feeder has inspired people to come up with their own versions. One woman posted videos of herself wearing an elegant, wide-brimmed hat with feeders on it.
One Etsy seller offered a version that used a bike helmet.
We bet you can come up with your own twist on this hummingbird headgear.
