If you love hummingbirds and don’t mind the idea of a lot of sharp, little beaks near your eyes, you may want to give these hummingbird feeder glasses a shot. The hummingbird feeder glasses shown below are not only exceptionally effective at drawing hummingbirds to one’s head, but also serve as a wonderful crown of flapping wings. Although users may want to check their shoulders after the hummingbirds have had lunch, if you catch our drift.
Laughing Squid picked up on the video of the hummingbird glasses, which features an unidentified man in Lyons, Colorado. Several outlets have referred to the man as the “hummingbird whisperer,” although it’s unclear if that’s actually this person’s nickname. (Incidentally, a search for the hummingbird whisperer turned up UCLA researcher Melanie Barboni, who has a colony that services over 200 of the little frantic flappers.)
In the video, we watch as the Colorado man remains still as a statue—except for a slight smile that develops midway through the clip—as the hummingbirds feed near his face. It seems that there are about five or six hummingbirds at peak feed, and that they’re all consuming a sugary, watery substance. Perhaps something as cold and refreshing as an icy can of Stranger Things juice.
What is perhaps most intriguing about these hummingbird feeder glasses isn’t the fact that somebody decided to make them, but rather that there are a bunch of other DIY hummingbird feeder contraptions all over the internet. Like the one below, for example, which was created by Spencer Staley and comes via Bored Panda.
