This is truly amazing. Of course, since this is the first such video, how do we know if this particular little guy is doing it right?

    And best of luck to the little guy. Many all his courtship wishes come true.

    I just saw this amazing little bird in my garden, in the middle of Lima, the very poluted capital of Peru!

    Thank you for share your hummer with us. This is yet another of the hummers to add to the list of those I have at least seen a photo of.
