Hummingbird Haven -- Spring Migration 2014

Female black-chinned hummingbird

The last six weeks might have been the hummingbirdiest migration ever at our country home. We're moving closer to town in mid-May so I wanted to share the sweetness of this time with you before we go.

A minute of flying miracles waits for your click. 

P.S. We'll start a new smaller bird refuge across town. And the new owners here plan to feed the hummingbirds and take care of the plants. Good for everyone.

  1. WOW! That is amazing. I think the most I have coming to the feeder is 2 or 3. How wonderful the new owners will continue to feed the hummingbirds. Sounds like a win-win for everyone:)

  2. Love the photo and the video! Absolutely stunning to see so many at once. Thanks for sharing with those of us who aren't so lucky to be in the migration path.

  3. I'll second that "Wow" and the "Thanks" as well. We've got our early female visitor again this year with a male occasionally joining in and that's about it so far.

    Gosh -it's been fun having your window onto the slightly wilder side of hill country living. I'm looking forward to seeing and reading about your more urban digs as well.

    Hope your move goes smoothly (actually, I hope we all get rained on right before and then immediately after your truck arrives and is emptied!).

  4. Just lovely! Good luck with your move and let us hope that the new residents are as diligent about caring for the habitat you've established as you have been.

  5. How lovely - they are such charming little birds, aren't they? I hope your move goes smoothly. xo Karen

  6. How could anyone not love a hummingbird. Grats on seeing so many.
