Okay, I’ll fess up!
It’s not the nectar.
Here’s all you have to do.
Just whistle Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida.”
Okay……. you should do it in tune. They’ll skid to a stop in mid-air.
They are mesmerized by “Viva la Vida!”
They will stop what they are doing, and watch, and listen!
It is best if you can sound just like this:
If you do, they will be stunned into flightless stupor. They will sit politely. They will not try to kill each other, and they will watch you, like this:
It’s unheard of for them to sit politely and share a branch. What can I say? They love Coldplay?
Or is it David Garret?
Of course, it could also be that my whistling is so out of tune and discordant, it renders them dumbstruck and flightless.
Whatever. I suggest you try it. Just whistle Vida while you work and see what flies over!
Cheers to you from my marvelous, musically-inclined, little hummers!
