Tuesday, September 21st, 2010 at 6:22 am in hummingbirds.
I found a spunky hummer having lunch at my Salvia bush in my backyard. As I crept up, he spun around and stared me down for a second, then went back to his meal.

Bill & Ann:
What the hummer was saying was, “Come back later, Dude, I’m busy eating right now!”
They may be the tiniest birds in the world, but they are also the pushiest. The male Anna’s hummingbird that lives in my (his!) backyard, waits for me to come out and start watering my garden with the hose, and then zooms down and hangs in the air right in front of me … waiting for me to give him a shower with the fine spray.
If I take too long to start spraying him, he starts to “yell” at me. Hummingbirds, you gotta love them. /Gary
