Hummingbird Hovering Over Feeder

Hummingbird Hovering Over Feeder

I have about 4-5 different hummingbirds that feed from the 2 feeders hung in my backyard.

When the feeders go empty, I swear the little guys alert me to this.

This has happened at least 6 times now & each of those times the feeders were empty. I open the sliding glass door & step outside onto the patio.

I was immediately greeted by one of the hummingbirds who zipped down from the Brazilian Pepper Tree they nest in, stopped at eye level & just under two feet away from my face.


He hovered there for 3-5 seconds then darted-off.
I have no idea if this is a common behavior or not.

It seems to me they have the ability to communicate with us on some level, particularly in this case.

It's actions were pretty deliberate & this hasn't happened when the feeders had nectar in them.

They will also buzz my head when out in the yard following the initial greeting.

It's all to say, "fill'er up man!"
