To a lot of indigenous people, esp. in the U.S. Southwest, the hummingbird is considered a messenger who flies between different “worlds”.

Probably has a parasite.

I like hummingbirds and all, but I hate how many of them identify as Republicans.

I’m guessing they probably think humans are the most incredibly slow, staggering, monolithic, and therefore harmless creatures in their universe… and yet they produce the most consistently tasty nectar! Maybe if we land on a human, they’ll hand us a biscuit.

If she really loved the little murderbird, she’d find it a nice bunch of tiny insects. Nom nom nom nom.

Could be very used to people, but I wonder if it’s alright. The only time I ever had a hummingbird sit in my hand like that, it was because it was stunned and exhausted from having come inside the house and then bounced off windows unable to get out before I could gather it up. (It was fine after a little rest.)

Whatever’s in the feeder shouldn’t be yellow. Sugar and water is all you should ever feed a hummingbird. (4 parts water to 1 part white sugar, no colour, no other sweeteners, just water and sugar.)

I didn´t know that, and I am a happier person now that I have learned it.
Thank you!

“You’re so sweet!”

“Well, I have been consuming nothing but nectar.”
