hummingbirds are awesome, beautiful, swift and terrible. they are among the most pugnacious, belligerant, feisty creatures on the planet. they'd wade right into a bfi fight thread and kick ass.
That might just be the funniest thing ever said on this board. I laughed. HARD.
A few years ago, back in Ohio, I found a humming bird nest in a low branch of a pine tree in our yard. I watched it all spring. Saw the tiny eggs, three of them, and i mean tiny.....watched them hatch, and grow up and fly off. Once the nest was abondoned, we clipped the branch it was on, and framed it in a shadow box. My parents have it on their wall now with a picture shortly after the babies were hatched. We put a dime next to them for reference, and that thing looks huge next to those tiny little birds.
