Have you ever had an "interaction" with a hummingbird? Did it acknowledge your presence?


One day in the garden, a pesky pigeon was wanting to eat on our flowers. I got out the broom to chase it away. The pigeon flew to the roof next door to wait until I went inside, only to return after I left. This happened over and over again. At one point, I hid behind our privacy fence with the broom to chase the pigeon. This pigeon somehow knew I was there. A hummingbird appeared out of nowhere and suddenly seemed interested in me, hovering over me, giving away my location to the pigeon. This was my hummingbird encounter. It was very memorable.

    Great story. They seem more intelligent and trusting than other types of birds. We have many Rose of Sharon bushes around our yard, and Hummingbirds love to visit blooming Rose of Sharons.
