We have Anna's hummingbirds in the yard presently and we observed some
interesting behavior the other morning. Two of them were very close to
the ground and circling around each other. We presumed this was mating
behavior and we were lucky one year to watch one of the males hovering!
Not to mention the dive-bomb! Anyway, what was curious is that they
both layed down on the ground for several minutes. We were distracted
for a moment by watching a robin, so we thought we missed them flying
away. But they were still there and took off simultaneously a bit
later. Has anyone seen them lay on the ground like this? Susie in
