Good Evening Birders, Early, early this morning,(Sunday 4-4-10), just after midnight outside my residence in Torrance, CA, which is in Los Angeles County, I had a most unusual hummingbird encounter. While resetting my hummingbird feeder window hook, I heard what I believed to be the sound of a hummingbirds wings over my left shoulder. And this just after midnight mind you, so I looked over to my left and lo and behold there is a large
size hummingbird most likely an Anna's flying just a few inches from my head. The bird stayed for a couple of seconds, and then flew off. I never saw it again. Not an unusual bird sighting, but most unusual bird behavior, especially for a hummingbird.
