Perhaps some of you have observed this behavior before. This morning while sitting quietly on our back patio that overlooks the sprinkler system, I witnessed a RT hummingbird fly into the misting spray, hover and turn as its feathers got wet, move to the next sprinkler and repeat the process, then fly up to preen.
It was all quite efficient and well-rehearsed. I'll try to get photos some morning if this is a regular occurrence. Anyone else witness hummers using a sprinkler system this way?
