hair raising

Working in my garden I have humming birds buzz me all the time. Recently I have a humming bird buzz me and then come back and pull my hair. I told my daughter who lives a mile away. She said she had the same experience. I had never heard anyone tell me that before. Is that common behavior?

It's nest building time. I wonder if the hummingbird thought your hair would be perfect to line their nest!
