Hummingbirds do talk and I'll tell you how I know. I have a hummingbird feeder that I put out at the beginning of summer. Have not seen one hummingbird all summer long. Because of that, I have not filled the feeder for a couple of months now. Actually, I thought it leaked because it kept getting lower in water so I just didn't fill it. No hummingbirds, leaky feeder, no reason to fill it.
This morning I went out and was sitting at the patio table, not quite awake and drinking my coffee and from the left side of my preferential vision, I caught this object coming in. All of a sudden, low and behold, not 3 to 4 feet in front of my eyes, hovered a hummingbird. It came in as fast as a whip, hovered in front of me (just staring at me) for at least 45 seconds or so and then just that fast, flew off to my right. NOW, after being in total shock at what I just saw, the message was very clear.
What this little guy wants me to pass on I know for sure is this, although you don't see us hovering around the hummingbird feeder, make sure you keep our food filled. What a beautiful morning!
