I was walking down the beach once wearing a Hawaiian shirt with big hibiscus flowers on it and a hummingbird flew up to me and "inspected" the flowers on the shirt for a few seconds before flying off to find a real meal!..........

Note to self..do not wear shirts with animals deemed meals by birds of prey.

My stepdad was wearing a red cap with yellow vent holes when a hummingbird drilled his head right through one of the vents. He thought he'd been stung by a really big bee.

A hummingbird ran into the window in my husband's radio room a couple of years ago and knocked himself out. My husband picked him up and brought him in and fed him for 3 or 4 days until he could fly without listing to one side or spiraling downward. I believe that it was the same one who kept coming back and sitting on the window sill and looking in. We had a feeder right outside the window at the time.
