Hummy Birds, Hmph!

My mom person has some new fascination. It’s a bird called a hummy bird. I am not impressed.

I don’t hear them doing one single bit of humming.

This is the hummy bird feeder. It sits right outside of my mom person’s computer desk.


My mom person makes special sugar food for the hummy bird. Then the hummy birds come and drink the food.


Now we’ve already established that the hummy birds don’t hum, so what’s the big deal you ask?


Well it seems that the amazing hummy bird eats while holding still. Yeah, big whip, it eats while it stands still.

I eat while I stand still every day. Even the cats have the ability to stand still while they eat.

But the non-humming hummy birds, yeah they get special sugar food & everybody ooh’s & ahh’s because they can eat standing still.

I’m pretty sure if that’s grounds for rewards & fussing, then I should be at the top of that list, but hey, that’s just my opinion. Hmph!

  1. You stand still when you eat? We tend to move our bowls all over the kitchen when we eat.

  4. Hi there Oskar (aka my twin)…

    Wow, a hummingbird… it can eat standing still? Really? Big freakin' deal you should see me, I eat laying down and pee while standing on three legs!

    Our mom loves these too, we know all too well how you feel.

  5. Hi Oscar!

    Thanks for visiting my blog today and for your very kind words!

    My Mom had a mini schnauzer (salt and pepper, though) and loved her very much! You guys are cute as can be!


  6. Oh wow!! Hsin-Yi is so excited reading this – she thought Hummy Birds only existed in TV on the Animal Planet channel! 🙂 She didn't know you can get real, live ones in your backyard – how cool is that!

  7. I'd love to see an actual humming bird stand still while eating. No humming birds, humming or not, in our neck of the woods.

  8. Pffft!! We can't figure out what all the fuss is about a silly ol' hummy bird either!

    Our Mama put up a hummy bird feeder once – all we got was ants!

  9. Hmmm… we think staying still while you're eating is quite difficult – our food bowls must be approached from many different angles during a single meal!

  10. We are with you – we think that eating and standing still doesn't sound like a big deal. Now, eating and running around like crazy – that would be impressive!

  11. Maybe I should send you a little hat that says "Give me some sugar."

    It could be helpful in more ways than one. 🙂

  12. What a neat spot for the hummy bird feeder so you can watch who is coming and going too, Oskar!

    Love ya lots

  13. I agree! You should most definitely get oohed and aahed over for eating while standing still. Plus, you can bark and that hummy-bird can't even hum. Humans are so perplexing!

    I do likes those pictures, though. Your mom did a good job taking them.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  14. Hi Oskar,

    Sometimes we simply don't understand humans! Eating whilst standing still? Big whoop! Sigh – just think of ALL the special treats that should be coming you way for all the times YOU'VE eaten whilst standing still!!

    Eating whilst standing still? Whatever will these humans be amazed and astounded by next?! Sleeping whilst lying down?! Seeing things by using your eyes?!! Humans just don't make sense!
