I know this is an oriole feeder, but they seem to like this one best.

TRAINING THE HUMMERS
I have seen videos of people getting hummingbirds to land on their fingers or something they were holding and I made it a project of mine! I would train the hummers to come close to me. With animal/bird tricks, it all comes down to food! My husband manned the camera and I just filled the feeder and thought the longer I hold it, surely they will come. AND THEY DID!!! Now mind you, these are very well fed birds. I have one feeder full at all times. I counted 14 the other day! I only had to hold it for a few minutes and I was being swarmed. They are not afraid at all. Anyone else have any luck with getting a hummingbird to land on you or an object close to you?
