Subject: RE: BS: Hummingbirds
I've had a couple of ruby throats this week but the strangest thing has been going on since yesterday- one lone hummer- no red on its throat (femal?) has been sitting on one of the perches, absolutely still, except for an occasional blink of an eye or cock of the head, for the longest time! She seems to be sitting there for hours, at least she's there whenever I look, and she seems to know I'm there, but if I move slowly or stand still she just sits there- not eating, just sitting. If I move suddenly she flies away, then comes back when I'm out of sight.

I've never seen anything like it in my life! Remember, my feeder is attached to the window, so she's only inches away from my face. What an honor!
