The only nature most people can see out their office is the occasional pigeon.
But lucky Melanie Barboni has a whopping 200 hummingbirds fluttering outside her window.
The assistant researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles, has been nicknamed the ‘hummingbird whisperer’ after befriending the creatures.
One bird, who Melanie named Squeak, even sleeps in her office when it’s cold outside.
If she is ever late feeding the birds, they will fly around her office in protest.
Melanie says that she’s always been obsessed with hummingbirds, despite the fact that the population in her native Switzerland is non-existent.
She said: “They are, in every aspect, remarkable. They are tiny but fierce.
“They are Mother Nature’s best creation.
“She was trying to make one tiny perfect jewel, and I think she got it perfectly right.”
Hummingbirds get their name from the noise their wings make as they flap up to 80 times per second.
The tiny birds can fly backwards and even upside down – what show offs.
