Garden Guests: Hummingbird

The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I'm beginning a new series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.

What do you think of this lovely little hummingbird?  I am pretty excited that a couple of my photos turned out so well!

The hummingbirds' annual migration is absolutely remarkable to me.  Have you ever tracked them using this map?

 I'd like to invite you to some parties this week.  One is today at Inspiration Café.  Link any gardening post!
 
 
 
Another party is tomorrow at Holli's Hoots and Hollers.  It's all about music!  Grab a song and link up at Tuesday Tunes!
 
 
 
 
Don't forget to come back RIGHT HERE for Tuesdays with a Twist!  Link up just about anything you like!
 
My song this week?  Have you heard The Speakeasies?  Oh, how I love them!  This is their video of Bright Lights Late Nights.

  3. I used to see hummingbirds at my grandma's house when I was little. She had feeders and I'd love to watch them come and eat!
    That's so cool about your backyard. Pretty awesome!

  5. I love hummingbirds too. I have a little sun flower pot with a feeder next to it. I wish I had a bigger garden but that is the best I can do because of disability. I will live vicariously through all the blogs you feature though. thanks. I may pull out the photobooks and get my old pics of my old gardens that I miss.

  15. Hi Y'all!

    We love trackin' the hummers, but don't put feeders up since we split our time between the mountain "high country" and the coastal "low country" in the southeast. Our hummers showed up here in mid March. There's plenty on which they can "stock up".

    Great photo captures.

    Y'all come on by,
