Abigail Alfano of Pine, Louisiana says in touching Hummingbirds are as light as a feather.

According to a received email in which there was no acknowledgement of the source of the information or the photographs, "This Woman lives in a Hummingbird fly zone".

  • As they migrated, about 20 of them were in her yard. She took the little red dish, filled it with sugar water and this is the result. The woman is Abigail Alfano of Pine, Louisiana - she had been studying them daily and one morning put the cup from the feeder (with sugar water in it) into her hand. Since they were used to her standing by the feeder they came over to her hand. She says in touching they are as light as a feather. Abigail also said, 'if she had known her husband was taking pictures she would have put on makeup.'
