I love observing animals be who they are, existing in their environments. Yesterday, I was treated to something I hadn’t seen before: two hummingbirds bickering over my hummingbird feeder.
It started in the morning. I kept hearing an angry bird song. I thought it was a couple of sparrows. However, around lunchtime, I happened to look up at the open door and saw the reflection of two hummingbirds chasing each other around my hummingbird feeder. It was like watching a reality show (a la Storage Wars) only starring hummingbirds!
I’m used to the staccato, almost metallic song of hummingbirds and had no idea that they were capable of this more normal-sounding vocalization.
I was fascinated … and so I took some video. I’ve posted it to Facebook, if you’d like to see.
I love having hummingbirds share my day and this break from the normal pattern was a real treat!

Another treat that celebrated me yesterday was attending an Expanding Consciousness meetup with a friend. She was the guest speaker and was in perfect form … yet again! I also connected with a couple of the other attendees and we may be working with each other for mutual benefit (the best kind!)
Also, my new press credentials arrived in the mail! Not only do they look better than my last ones … these don’t have an expiration date on them! I’ve been kind of lax in my reporterly duties, but have made a renewed commitment to get more stories done. Receiving these shiny new credentials helps me stick to that commitment.
Yesterday … it was great to be me!
