I love watching the hummingbirds outside my office window. In fact, I have even resuscitated two of them who tried to fly through the window. I used a tiny syringe filled with sugar water and they were both able to be revived. I guess word has gotten around the hummingbird community that I have sugar water because now they will come to my window if their feeder is low on food and they will just hover there until I replace their food. Last weekend my granddaughter, Whitney and I were on the porch in our big white swing and a hummingbird flew by and landed about a foot away and just stared at us. I told Whitney, "he wants more food." We filled up the feeder and watched as he and 3 others started fighting over the new supply of sugary, red liquid. This is the thing, the feeder can accommodate 4 birds but each one wanted to be THE ONLY ONE. They can actually get aggressive and knock each other away. When I saw this photo reference by Michael D Utin on Paint my Photo it reminded me of one of those aggressive little hummingbirds, the stance and the facial expression said it all! "Mine!"
Ummmm....there might be a life lesson here somewhere.
