Hummingbirds are curious little birds that evoke immense interest from bird watchers all over the world, even though they only live on one half of the earth.
Their ability in flight is matched by no other animal on earth.
They can maneuver in all directions with seemingly little effort.
And they are ever in a hurry.
Flitting from flower to flower with amazing speed and most often eating on the fly.
Even as we find them fascinating and curious it seems they find us rather interesting in return.
If you have fed Hummingbirds on a regular basis you may have noticed that they can become quite curious about you as well.
It seems they do take note that you are supplying one of their favourite meals, nectar syrup.
They can be enticed to drink syrup right from the palm of your hand if you are patient enough.
If you have a regular sitting area outside you may have noticed that your Hummers will hover quite close as if to be having a good look at you.
Perhaps it is their way of letting you know that their feeder is getting low, empty or needs attention in some way.
Or perhaps it is their special way of saying "Thank You!".
