My hummingbird story
One year, looking out our kitcben window we saw a anna,s hummingbird had built a nest in our tangelo tree, about 2-3 feet away. We looked at them every day, seeing them grow, when they got a bigger, they crossed their beaks facing each other. i went out and quickly took some photos. Unfortunately , the camera i was using didnt take closeups and they came out blurry.
One day as i was working in the backyard i heard hummingbirds chitting and looked up. there were two hummingbitds behind me hovering, saying hello!
A long time later, in winter, every mornig there was a hummingbird sitting on a branch of our apricot tree outside his computer room with its feathers fluffed up, probably coming out of torpor. We decided to name it fluffy. it was a a anna,s hummingbird.
Everytime i was working in the garden, when i saw her, I would say hello fluffy. and she would come closer. she wss usually just out of reach, hovering. i wouldn,t move, of course. This went on for years, then she wasn't there one year, and allen,s hummingbirds are here instead. i miss her.
