They like flowers in the vegetable garden, too. Beans of course, but I have seen them at onion, garlic, tomatoes and pepper blossoms, too. Almost any small blossom that attracts wasps and bees. Herbs -- mint, basil, Rosemary, ... And sage, of course.
And I was REALLY surprised to see one doing something with corn tassels. Is there any nectar in corn tassel-- male blossoms? I was thinking maybe the hummer was licking up pollen which is source of protein, or maybe there were bugs.
I sometimes forget that I'm working or standing next to a nectaring flower and am surprised to find a hummingbird hovering at my eye level as if waiting for me to leave or as if the bird was as surprised to see me there.
One day, I opened an upstairs window and a hummingbird came zooming up from the fence area across the garden to hover just on the other side of the screen window. WHO KNOWS WHY?
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.
