Do Hummingbirds Bring Love?

There is a common folk belief in Mexico that hummingbirds bring love and romance. In ancient times, stuffed hummingbirds were worn as lucky charms to bring success in matters of the heart.

Even today dead hummingbirds are sold as amulets. There is also a practice that still persists of drying the heart of a dead hummingbird, then grinding it into a power, which can be used in love potions.

Perhaps you and someone special should get a pair of binoculars and watch what's happening in the flower garden. One never knows what interesting developments might occur.
