Bird Day

Something kind of amazing happened this afternoon.

We have a hummingbird feeder in the back yard and a full complement of hummies to go with it.  Often when we’re outside, if there is an Issue with the feeder, a hummingbird will come right up nose to nose and squeak a certain way.  OK, we’re trainable, we know what to do. So, today, we were inside, and heard this enormously loud chirp sound, such as they make when they’re doing mating displays or just goofing around.  The Partner responded to this call , opened the back door, and was greeted by the sight of the hummingbird right outside our kitchen door, zooming straight up and down, chirping- because the feeder needed to be filled.  He led the Partner straight to the feeder, made eye contact, and flew off to allow the needed repairs to be completed. ( This plunged Boozilla and Co. into total jealous rage of course which required mollification with popcorn.)  I’ve had hummingbird feeders for a long time, and I have never had a bird knock on my door when it was empty before.  Amazing.

And, so.  Like I said: Phillies.  Don’t you think?  Even taking A-rod into consideration.
