what happens if a bird seeks you out regularly at elsewhere? theres a hummingbird who hangs out on my window, sometimes on the window screen and sometimes flitting around outside. we've never exchanged anything - not even words - but sometimes it finds me outside too. is this covered in the informational pamphlet anywhere? should i be asking cat eyes for glasses?

If you see it for what it truly is, it will be the last time you see it. Not because it harms you in any way, but because it will leave forever once betrayed. Accept this quiet companionship for the small and precious thing it is.

November 3, 2017 - McKay’s Bunting (Plectrophenax hyperboreus)

These buntings breed only on two small islands in the Bering Sea, Hall and St. Matthew Islands. They may have evolved from Snow Bunting populations that became isolated on these islands. Their diet is not well known, but they likely feed on insects and spiders in the summer and mostly seeds in the winter, foraging mostly on the ground. Though little is known about their breeding behavior, it is thought to be similar to the Snow Bunting’s. They build shallow cup nests from grasses in cavities in cliffs, under rocks, or in driftwood. Both parents probably feed the chicks.
