Poor Hummingbirds

During the summer my husband filled our hummingbird feeder and set it up outside our dining room window so that we could conveniently watch the hummingbirds feed. One day he brought the feeder inside for cleaning and refilling but did not immediately put it back outside. I was home all day, so I saw how this affected the birds. Every so often a hummingbird would fly to where the feeder ought to be, and then dart around for a few moments in what looked like a state of angry disbelief. I even saw a few of them (or the same one repeatedly) fly right up to the window and hover in front of it, as if looking directly at me. I’m pretty sure that that was the hummingbird way of saying, “WTF!”
