Preened and Cleaned

"Two hummingbirds have been very busy sucking up sugar water from 2 feeders the last two days. One sat on the clothesline, above me on a chair, grooming and cleaning itself for almost 20 minutes...They come almost nose to nose with me, as if to say thank you," writes Barbara of Mount Forest, Ontario.
