Speaking of hummingbirds, when I used to have feeders, they got so tame I could put my fingers out next to the feeder and the birds would land on my finger as they drank the nectar. First thing in the morning if I donít fill their feeders the hummers would fly right up to me and bug me until I fill their feeders.

I highly doubt any noise I make would have scared them off.


Yes, hummingbirds can be remarkably unphased by humans (had many fly right up to my face... to see if I'm edible I presume). It's like they know they're too fast for us

But, depending on the weather, other bird activity, and who knows what else, they can also be extremely skittish in my experience. I've witnessed first hand on many occasions how a mechanical shutter, machinegun style, from a fellow photog, will scare a skittish hummer away from a distance of about 15 feet. I'll be there silently shooting and along comes Mr Machinegun and, with his first salvo, the bird looks at him then zooms off. At other times they seem unphased by the rattle of mechanical shutters.

Same with some close-range warblers although they tend to be less bothered overall, especially during migration when they're no doubt more worried about finding food than predators.
