but they do. at least they do on my little ol' hummingbird feeder. yesterday, i saw TWO hummingbirds at my feeder. (my first ones of the season!!!) the first time, he was perched & he was looking for beverage. i'd put a little nectar out earlier in the week, but just a bit. it was either dried up or they'd eaten it. well, i quick as could be, refilled the feeder ALL THE WAY. and later on, a hummingbird was back. and he was perching, too. i fancy that it was the same bird.
last year, i had a hummingbird that would come into my porch & he would come by the window, as if looking for me. he would not fly away if he saw me. even if i talked to him. it was so exciting to me.
mom, how would you feel if i did this?! (don't worry, i'm totally kidding - i just like keeping her on her toes!)
