It was a hummingbird! What surprised us the most was that it did not flutter its wings. We have never seen a hummingbird sitting still on a perch on the feeder. Oh, how sweet! It was such a privilege!
The hummingbirds don't waste their energy flying about all the time and flapping their wings at an enormous speed. They actually do rest to conserve their energy.
I've always had a feeling that there is a hummingbird or two in the tall cedar tree where they are well protected.
The picture of the hummingbird is from Wikipedia and it best resembles the bird that came to our feeder When they do come and visit us, they don't stay very long. There is no time for me to take my own picture.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
I'll be off tomorrow so that I may get in sync with the rest of the bloggers for the
