Bogie I like your hummingbird facts I have one that claims my garden for his kingdom! Once when I watered my baskets, the water coming out the bottom became a shower stall for the little gem. An awesome thing to watch, a hummingbird taking a shower.

About a month ago my wife was out with our young grandson (2 1/2) and he was attracting a hummingbird that followed him home from the local playground. Kept buzzing around him, but not my wife. After they went into the house (our daughter's place in Waterloo, ON) they went to the back patio doors, and, there it was, hovering and looking in the window for our grandson! Remarkable!

Julio Iglesias was a lawyer before he became a music star. Comedian John Cleese is a lawyer, too.

there is something odd about hummingbirds. I reconize it because she who is me is odd herself.
Every year around December 20, the High school band from Reynolds school come to the senior's reside I work at and give a concert. On one side of the room are wall to floor windows, they go out onto a patio and gardens. When the band starts, out of nowhere comes the resident hummingbird. He comes to the window and hovers and stares in, watching and listening. This has happened for the past 4 years.

Everytime you see it, you got to wonder, whats up with that? Does he really come for the music? Is this little brain trying to connect with peapod brain. Where is Dr. Doolittle when you need him?

In Victoria there are humming birds that stay all year round, and if you are fortunate enough to have one make his terrority around you, than you are in for some unusual moments.
