Few days back I thought I saw a hummingbird rising from the feeder. I've kept it up for weeks in the hope I'd see one or two, but this could have been a dragonfly or something and it was the only possible sighting. But, just in case, I cleaned it out- it'd been a week and a couple of days- and filled it with fresh nectar.
That was about five days ago. The level had dropped, but that could've been evaporation and I hadn't seen anything hummer-like since. Decided I'd wash and refill it. Just as I started to hang it this thruum-thruum sound went past my head twice; started to think Wasp! but then Is that what I think it was?
Hung it, walked about eight feet and turned around as a little hummingbird zipped down, checked out the still-swinging feeder, looked at me, moved partway around the feeder, then zipped off.
I just spent fifteen minutes(in which the cake in the oven damn near burned) in a chair watching. He didn't show again, but at least I know he's there. Dammit, felt a little like Christmas morning as a kid.
