Tired Little Hummingbird

Yesterday evening I noticed a little male hummingbird sitting very still on our hummingbird feeder. Every few minutes he’d take a sip and then sit still again. He stayed on the feeder for over 30 minutes. We worried he was sick or hurt. Thankfully when the sun set he flew away and seemed to be in fine health. We figure the little guy may have gotten exhausted from the heat of the day and needed to feed and rest to build his energy back up.
He sure was a cutie.

I hope you all have a pleasant weekend.

  1. How sweet! We put a couple feeders out every year and the hummingbirds love to come and just hang out. They will sit and look around for 15-20 minutes at a time sometimes. They are so inquisitive! One once got within a couple inches of Rascal’s face, tilting its head side to side looking at her. I have had them do the same to me sometimes too. I think they get just as curious about us as we are about them!

      It’s amazing how curious the hummingbirds are. They check out anything or anyone from time to time.
      Aw that’s precious memory of Rascal and the hummingbird. It sounds like two angels acknowledging each other. 😀
