Observation notes: I met this fellow in midtown NYC. He flew onto the table where I was sitting to sip some of the drink that I’d spilled. Then he decided to slurp up what was on my finger. When that was done he fluttered around me face until I dipped my finger another finger in the drink and then he landed and drank that as well before flying off.
