    I had to put my dog to sleep on 8/25 after 14 years 5 months together. We did it outside on the edge of the woods facing some flowers. As she passed from this world i looked up and a baby hummingbird was fluttering over the flowers as if her spirit had just been reborn before my eyes.

    “Fare thee well, fare thee well, i love you more than words can tell. Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul.”

    For the last two weeks, when I stop at a certain stop sign on my way to work, there has been a hummingbird staring back at me, right through my windshield. I move forward and he is still flying staring at me, then he takes off. Today, I didn’t see him at the stop sign, but when I turned the corner and finally got to my work parking lot, there he was, as if we were going to collide. He wasn’t going move, as my car kept moving he stated right in my view, I was afraid I was going to hurt him with my car, but nope, it was if he was saying good morning. then he flew off! I can’t wait to see if he is back tomorrow.

    This is Wonderful! I just saw a humming bird which rally brought my spirit up. I had been feeling depressed & having negative thoughts prior to going outside to sit on my bench. I must mention that I’m in the process of getting my relitive foster license so I can get my nephew whom I love but negative thoughts come up as far as how this is I’m going to make this happen and then I see a humming bird. I thought it was a coincidence & then three others came up then I new it was a sign so I Google it & read this GREAT article. Thank you so much! Much appreciated.Humming birds are little angels.

    I was writing a blog post on rebirth, on forging a new life, with a new spiritual direction. As I looked up, there was a hummingbird hovering over the boxwood shrubs beneath our front window. I knew that had to be some kind of sign, as I was vaguely aware of what hummingbirds represented when they appeared. I Googled it, and of all the choices, I picked yours. Thank you so much for the extensive information.

    This was EXACTLY what I needed to see! Not even 15 minutes ago, I had a hummingbird fly up to our 2nd story window of our 4 plex apts. and fly stationary (for only a second or two) He/she stared @ the dog and myself before whizzing away. WHY I see this as something more than ordinary is several months back I would get visits from an occasional honeybee/bumblebee; Since honeybees/bumblebees are slowly disappearing Worldwide, I started to “pick-up” the area where we live because there’s a ton of wildlife. I also saw a young buck strolling along the park, street and sidewalk this morning as I was taking my dog for a walk.
    I get very disheartened @ the fact that humans pollute and USE so much more than their needs. Trash everywhere… 🙁 It hurts my heart, truly. I physically can not clean up these areas by myself: the job is too immense for a single person. Seeing the hummingbird lifted my spirit. I’ll continue to seek others who can aide in cleaning up efforts for our neighborhood.
    I REALLY THINK and FEEL that if each one of us did our small daily part to keep our home areas, and environments clean and animal friendly @ the exact same time, we’d save thousands of species for our generations to come.
    Thanks for the article!
