I just got done unplugging WiFi cam for family event and sitting at cpu inside the house. About 10 minutes later I look out at thefeeder & BAM there he is. Camera is setup next to me, Im trying to snap pics thru my dirty window and realize its not on. Im freaking out, sweat pouring down,trying to calm down and figure things out. I get the camera on and snapped about 8 pics and then hes gone.

After looking at probably hundreds of wificam vids, its time to relax and go on with life, shower, change clothes,stop eating junk food and get some real food..LOL

Pics arent great, going out to clean my windows now.

Alex,

Good for you!! I have not seen any in my yard but have the camera (from you) up ready and waiting. Hope you see many more hummingbirds in your yard this summer!

Thanks...

WiFi cam is plugged in now and hopefully will get some more visitors this week. Its been so windy over here that the cam picks up the movement of the feeder. Its blowing out my email with hundreds of vids. Will keep all posted.

See ya
