With wings spun of silver and hearts of gold,
These tiny creatures our hearts behold.
With angelic features and colors so bright,
Make even the heaviest heart seem light.
The magical way they flit through the sky,
They appear, then vanish in the blink of an eye.
They're sending a message for us to retrieve,
Anything's possible for those who believe!
This evening I watched two hummingbirds performing quite the aerial display. It was done high in the air and hard to tell if it was two males fighting over territory or a mating ritual. Part of the dance was one flying straight up and back down again in a U formation several times. This took a lot of energy and a trip to our nectar feeder became necessary.
