Hand feeding Hummingbirds – Ketchikan Alaska Tours

Feed them yourselves! www.alaskadiscoverytours.com. A hand fed Hummingbird video that is amazing. Taming the Alaskan hummingbird. These hummingbirds were filmed at our lodge in Alaska, no feeder required! Our lodge in Alaska has TONS of these little birds in the summer. Did you know their hearbeat can be as high as 1200 beats ber minute! Mother nature is amazing! These adorable hummingbirds eat right out of our hands here at the lodge. While setting up the cameras for some more handfeeding, these two little hummingbirds gave us “the shot”. Though I love the hummingbirds in Alaska, The majority only arrive after migrating from Mexico, looking for feeders along the way. Sometimes I wish we lived somewhere where we could watch baby hummingbirds in their nests. Some of those videos are amazing! NOTE We don’t use red dye anymore. We use 4:1 Water to sugar only.

    breath taking footage

  6. BodyCareBoutique says:

    This had me in tears because of how precious these little ones are, and how they trusted big humans for the sake of food.

  7. TheQuezalcoatl says:

    What flowers do these exquisite birds feed from? It is wonderful to see them at a bird feeder, but would it be better for the birds to have them feed from flowers ?
    If the birds were to start relying on human intervention as their main food source, and you moved away or could not feed them , the birds might suffer.

  12. n00berania says:

    The perfect shot’s a little misleading due to the nectar’s color but still, an excellent shot indeed!

  13. 2letmec says:

    truly remarkable and what a phenomenal experience for all, especially the children! Thank you so much for this wonderful video 🙂 Loved it

  14. yanskee1429 says:

    When I was watching these I feel like crying it’s wonderful …. Experiencing holding any kinds of bird in your hand is an achievement, I also wanted to experience that too …

  15. ZoeliA says:

    omg… I want to have the same experience!!!!!!!!!!!! I really love hummingbirds, they’re so cute

  16. linneasr says:

    Love the hummingbirds. Not so excited about the narrator’s endless self-promotion.

  17. panostsak says:

    Oh my god, they come from Mexico? How come they are not shot at the border?

    JK. Lovely video!

  18. r3ini says:

    Woah, in the thumbnail, I thought the red nectar in the guy’s hand was blood. I expected to see a short movie about killer hummingbirds 😮

  19. Dafixer97 says:

    Way good

  20. beerbelly133 says:

    Made me smile! Wonderful little creatures.

  21. Lavenderrose73 says:

    @ConfusingGamer I was not even focused on the music OR his voice, just the story being told about a family managing to handfeed the hummingbirds.

    I’ve been told years ago how fast one beats, although I wouldn’t remember how fast I was told. It *might* have been 1200, saying it was because of how fast their wings are flapping. I have painted lady butterflies since I got a butterfly and ladybug habitat combo set for Christmas. Having a butterfly on my hand is one of those natural highs.

  22. ConfusingGamer says:

    @Lavenderrose73 Also all I said was it was cheesy, it’s true because you have that type of music and the guys voice just sounds weird how he talks, looks at the description.
    Our lodge in Alaska has TONS of these little birds in the summer. Did you know their hearbeat can be as high as 1200 beats ber minute! Mother nature is amazing!

  23. ConfusingGamer says:

    @Lavenderrose73 But it’s your choice, isn’t it?

  24. Lavenderrose73 says:

    @ConfusingGamer Actually I’m a bit touchy because it seems so many people from everywhere just want to ridicule America, and it’s just unnecessary and disrespectful. If we cut on others, we’re just plain arrogant. (not that I endorse anyone here mistreating or cutting on others; I was very angry when I found out how Homeland Security treated international tourists who came out here with honorable intentions). If one of you, however, cuts on one of us, we just have to “get over it.”

  25. ConfusingGamer says:

    @Lavenderrose73 Plus the only reason your a bit touchy, is because I’m right 😛

  33. 1985woooman says:

    Thank you.

  46. ufounvectordixi says:

    i am from czech republic,but i wil leave there soon

  47. elchico4321 says:

    you are right silvi0420. if some one says there is no place like alaska is because they have not been out of the country. and of course the rednecks always have to stick their heads in every little thing.
    And of course every state or country has its beauty and its getto just like alaska does too. and just like miami, los angeles, new york. so shut up! it all depends on where you want to live. or sometimes you have to.

  48. sixtiesforever1966 says:

    @onlyoneak Sooner or Later you will have illegal aliens up there taking the few jobs you have like here in the lower 48. Keep Alaska like it is. Alaska is a beautiful place.
    Heaven on Earth!
