We love watching hummingbirds, those marvelous, tiny birds that flit around our yards! We are enjoying another exciting hummingbird season in 2015.

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!

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 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 personal experience, in selecting and maintaining feeders and nectar solutions.

We also monitored the Spring 2015 hummingbird migration with the help of our viewers as they submitted hummingbird sightings in their area.

Today we are enjoying incredible numbers of Ruby-throats here in Texas, as many as 20-25 seen at a time!

Here's a quick YouTube video of part of our Ruby-Throat Hummingbird population today, August 25, 2015 ...

One of these beautiful southbound migrants landed on a pink Giant Zinnia, seen below ..

And we had the good fortune of seeing a Rufous Hummingbird here in East Texas in August ... a rare sight for this area. He was sharing feeders with about 20 Ruby-Throats.
