Subject: IBET RT Hummingbird (in sprinklers)
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?
