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?
