Photographs of Hummingbirds


View photos of different hummingbird species

We love watching hummingbirds, those marvelous, tiny birds that flit around our home landscapes! We are looking forward to another fun hummingbird season in 2016.

We also enjoy hummingbird gardening, and designing our landscape to provide food and shelter for a variety of hummingbirds, butteflies, birds and other natural inhabitants of our world.

Shown here are a few quick favorites of some recent hummingbird sightings.

From Kristi, in Magnolia, Texas: "This little fella was stuck in our barn.
After 1/2 hour or so we managed to catch him in a butterfly net
and get some nectar into him and send him on his way". (April 2012)

Kristi continues ... "It was truly amazing watching him drink the nectar off my fingers with his tongue.
I was shocked how long their tongues are!!" (April 2012)
