We love watching hummingbirds, those marvelous, tiny birds that flit around our home landscapes! We are looking forward to another fun hummingbird season in 2021.

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.

Visit our page of hummingbird photos submitted by friends and supporters!

We'll get more posted from our archives shortly, so visit again soon.
