Yesterday I had a first as an individual who feeds birds: a hummingbird flew up to me while I was standing outside eating my breakfast banana. It hovered directly in front of me as if to say:
Please, ma'am, could you see to my feeder?
Now I've had chickadees that have begged for food, I've had finches lingering over feeders that needed filled. I've heard of hummers pestering the humans who fill their feeders.
But this was the first time I've actually experienced it.
Yes. I took the feeder right inside, made some simply syrup, and filled it.
I also blog at: Weight for Deb and BlogHer on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
