Bird lovers are always looking for a way to get up close and personal with our fine feathered friends without disturbing their natural behavior. Heatstick has created a wearable hummingbird feeder that will get you as close to the action as possible without getting your eyes poked out.
Known as the :–2<: (pronounced eye to eye ) Wearable Hummingbird Feeder, this unique bird feeder is a full face shield with a hummingbird feeder built in. Basically, you place the shield over your head, sit very still and wait for hummingbirds to drink from the feeding tube located between your eyes.
To allow the shield to blend in with the natural environment as well as make the birds feel a little more comfortable, a graphical inlay of red rhododendrons is included. In addition, the designers recommend leaving the feeder out where you plan to do your bird watching so that they can get accustomed to the device.
The :–2<: Wearable Hummingbird Feeder retails for £49 and yes, there is a video of its use in action.
