I Had a Special Treat Today!
Okay... perhaps a normal occurance for most of you. I was walking to my most active feeder this afternoon and I saw a hummer coming to one of my other feeders. I froze and watched him drink from the feeder, then he took a sip from a bunch of flowers along the way to the feeder I was 8 feet from. He landed on that feeder and he drank for a long time. When he finished drinking he noticed me and flew right up to my face! Closest he got was about a foot! Then he backed up a foot and stayed there for a good 10 seconds and the flew around my head and returned to the front for a bit more. Then he flew away and chased another hummer.
It was so cool! Not sure if he was trying to defend the feeder or if he was just checking me out.
