I came upon this post by Paula Matsumoto (www.sanseilife.wordpress.com) and found the video charming. My parents passed on their wonderment when it came to hummingbirds (and many creatures roaming around their acreage in Kansas). Mom and dad would sit quietly on the porch in the early morning or the late evening at watch the hummingbirds feed. Their code, when a hummingbird was near, was to make a “hummmm” sound yet stay very still as not to startle the feeders.
Enjoy the video Paula found and passed on in her blog:
