From the recording Hummingbird ~ and other nearly true stories ~
♪ Hummingbird Some people believe that a departed loved one's spirit can visit in the form of a bird. The two hummingbirds in this story actually visited as told in the song, and actually interacted with us and each other exactly as sung. It all began to happen right after one parent died, and continued each summer for several years, until right after the other parent died. We don't see them very often anymore, but smile at the thought that they might very well visit again.
