We have one regular Ruby-throated Hummingbird and two or three others that fequent a feeder we attached below the roof of our front porch. The other day, and I know the birds need to feed continually throughout the day, during a very electric and thunderous storm our regular conntinued to feed as if nothing had changed. All througout the storm he would repeatedly return to the feeder. Most birds in the midwest find shelter during a storm and you won’t see them again until they realize the storm has passed…as a matter of fact you can almost be certain a storm has passed once the birds start movong again. I had not noticed this hummingbird behavior until the recent storm. I found it quite remarkable but for the hummingbird it seemed natural.
