In Which I Confuse a Hummingbird
Mr. Hummingbird's feeder was low on sugar water yesterday, so I took his feeder down washed it, and made him some new dinner. While the feeder was inside drying and the water was cooling off, I was sitting on the patio. Up flew Mr. Hummingbird, looking for his feeder. He flew around in circles, obviously perplexed. In fact, he was so disconcerted that it was gone that he flew to the nail it hangs from and started pecking at that with his beak. Water from a stone, er, nail. Very pretty bird, but kind of dumb (Okay, kind of innocent, is that better than dumb?).
