Anna's hummingbirds sip a lot of nectar, of course, but they also eat insects and spiders, which may help explain why I so frequently observe them hovering near thick vines and shrubs along the fence, far from the nearest flower. And they obviously get more than a meal from the spiders, since the nest relies heavily on pilfered webs for its construction and anchoring. Stunning.
