Hummingbird social?Posted Wednesday, September 9, 2009, at 8:21 AM
I just witnessed a rare hummingbird aerial dance, or at least I never noticed it before. Maybe 8-10 birds were slowly hovering around the feeders and flowers but none were eating and none were fighting or bombarding each other.
The best way I can put it in human terms is that it seemed like a "social". I wish I had been outside to hear if they were chatting, not that I would understand, but....
This went on for about 10 minutes and now they are all gone. I did not notice if they moved the party elsewhere or just broke up. Has anyone else noticed this behavior?

When does "progress" trump leaving things well enough alone? Rezoning good or bad.
