California Man Wears a Hat With Tiny Bright Red Hummingbird Feeders to Spend Time With the Birds

Like his fellow bird-lover in Colorado, a man Santa Monica, California documented himself wearing a clever hummingbird feeder hat. The hat has three bright red plastic ramekins, each with a flower in the center that allows only the tiniest of beaks to poke through. The birds happily chirp as they fed while flapping their delicate wings while the man sits very still.

I’ve been fascinated with the hummingbirds that come and visit my patio for several years. Every spring they return and nest in the trees across from my home. Not too long ago, I started filming hummingbirds on my patio in the Santa Monica mountains. At the moment, I use my phone to get the footage, while I feed them with my hat.

The hummingbird feeder hat was purchased from David Fritz Katz, who is wearing one in this video.
