We have an American flag in our back yard and last summer, I saw several Hummingbirds hovering around it. I bought a feeder, have kept it filled up since then and have yet to see another Hummingbird.
My parents have a Springer Spaniel who goes insane when animals are on television. They watched that movie about sled dogs (I think it is called Eight Below) a few weeks ago and had to put their dog outside because he was barking so loudly. Their dog actually runs behind the television and howls. It is hilarious. Our Henry does growl and bark at other dogs and birds on tv but he is not as bad.
