    Default "Hummingbird" Waltz in A flat

    A short waltz inspired by the hummingbirds outside my window. They are fierce little birds and they're very territorial about their feeders. Hope you enjoy it!

    Wow! That's really good! My wife used to watch the hummingbirds and say, "They're playing together." But no, there were far more serious things at stake.

    You got that right. Under their playful facade the hummingbirds are having turf wars!

    And there's always a "Napoleon bird," that tries to keep everybody else away from the feeders...

    I've noticed this too. Have you seen when two Napoleon birds meet? Watch out!

    I liked the Jazzy rhythms and harmony. Very well done.

    As always this is a very lovely, well planned and executed work. I like the chromaticism of the melody, it really give the illusion of the birds flitting from flower to flower. Very well done.
