That is one big fat hummingbird. Never knew they could get that big and still do what they do.

That's a great capture, Ed!
I wonder if he was just curious or was really thirsty"
Can't say as I've ever seen anything like it before.

Good thing it didn't peck it's own opening, you would have had a sticky flood.

It would have a sweet tooth if it had a tooth, but it doesn't, so it must be a sweet beak! Good catch.

Thanks guys. It has developed a sweet beak alright. It returns about every 15-20 minutes and stays for 5 minutes or so drinking. Does a good job of eating the ants and bees too!! LOL
