Northern California woman Patty Cottington is no stranger to hummingbirds, especially the “hundreds” that she says live in her town of North Fork “year-round” and which happily feed straight from her hand.
In a video posted by Cottington on Facebook, numerous hummingbirds are seen darting around her garden in North Fork, a community in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range, and taking nibbles from a feeder in her hand.
Cottington told Storyful that she feeds the birds on a regular basis. “I literally have hundreds of hummingbirds that live here year-round,” she said. “During peak season I go through five gallons of hummingbird nectar a day,” she added. Credit: Patty Cottington via Storyful
