Ed, the Humming Bird

2009.09.11

I named him Ed, as in Special Ed.

He does look a bit fatter, or fluffier, than the others.

Looks like he's dying in this one...but as I type he's perched like in #1, flapping away...

Yesterday morning I noticed this little guy hanging out by the humming bird feeder, and thought he was stuck, so I went outside to check it out, but he flew away. Throughout the rest of the day I kept my eye on him. He is generally seen perched on the edge of the railing, like in #1 and #3, flapping his wings. Although later in the day he is more likely to just sit there.

I'm sure there is something wrong with him, but no idea what, and there's really nothing I can do for him. He flies just fine, and protects his feeder adamantly, chasing off any other hummer that comes near. But his overall behavior is beyond strange to me.

Lynda Maybe he's just displaying for a mate or sunbathing by stretching out his wings?

Lrivers Hey Ed, are you physically challenged? Mentally challenged? Keep humming though.
