Today I was watering a bush in our yard using a narrow, low-pressure, pencil-like stream of water. There were no blooms near me. A Rufous Hummingbird showed up and hovered in front of me and appeared to be checking me out. I stood still wondering why it was there. Previously when I have had this experience, there was some brightly colored flower or object nearby. Soon the hummingbird moved to within a couple of inches of the stream of water. Then three times it dipped into the water and took a drink. Each dip lasted 3 seconds or so. Very exciting!
