We love watching hummingbirds, those marvelous, tiny birds that flit around our yards! It was another exciting hummingbird season in 2014.
The fall southward migration has peaked in our area, and we are seeing declining numbers of Ruby-Throat hummingbirds.
We also enjoy hummingbird gardening, and designing our landscape to provide food and shelter for a variety of hummingbirds.
Where ever you live in the U.S.A., Canada, or beyond, this website can provide you with valuable information about these amazing birds.
On this website we present highlights of common hummingbird species found around the country, as an entry-level learning resource for those interested in these magnificent creatures!
Shown in the photo below is a group of Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds in a feeding frenzy during fall migration in East Texas, September 12, 2014!
We had 40-50 hummers at a time, with up to 10 on a single feeder with others hovering and waiting their turn!

While we haven't personally spotted all species found in the U.S.A., our hummingbird photo archive is extensive, and we will be posting photos and videos on this website over time.
We also monitored the Spring 2014 hummingbird migration with the help of our viewers as they submitted hummingbird sightings in their area.
We will try to help you attract hummingbirds to your home landscape. We'll share our experience from our own landscape which includes several types of Lantana (45 plants at last count!), Zinnias, Butterfly Bushes, Pentas, Salvia, Batface Cuphea, Nasturtiums, Coreopsis, and other hummingbird-friendly plants, annuals and perennials.
The selection of hummingbird feeders is large, and varied, and we will provide some guidance, and our experience, in selecting and maintaining feeders and nectar solutions.
