    Default hummingbird man

    What is a hummingbird man?


    THE VISITING HOUR WAS ALMOST OVER, SO
    the hummingbird man encountered only the occasional
    carriage as he pushed his cart along the narrow strip of road
    between the mansions of Newport and the Atlantic Ocean.

    My Last Duchess by Daisy Goodwin

    "[...] The sole heiress to her father's bread-flour fortune, she has grown up in a Newport mansion modelled on the Palace of Versailles, and her coming-out ball boasts 800 guests, fountains of champagne, and the release of a cageful of gold-sprayed hummingbirds at midnight." Guardian - My Last Duchess

    The hummingbird delivery man? ;)

    Please give this type of information with your original question in future. if you want an answer, you should not rely on the goodwill and patience of people like nyota to do work that should not have been necessary.
