There are literally about 8 hummers in our yard at any one time. I love watching them zoom from feeder to tree to feeder, making their little clicking/chirping sounds and hearing the whirr of their wings as they dive-bomb each other…and us, actually. They sometimes hover directly in front of our faces and then take off.

Hummingbird Fun Fact: What do you call a flock of hummingbirds? Few animals have so many applicable terms, and none so beautiful. Instead of calling them a flock, choose between a bouquet, a glittering, a hover, a shimmer, or a tune of hummingbirds (All About Birds).
I like “shimmer” or “glittering” best.
Depending on how the sun hits their feathers, the little sparkling jewels reveal different colors.
I’m definitely hooked on the little guys and girls. Is it possible she finds me interesting, too?
