Garden Guest: Tree Top Hummer

  The north side of our front yard is a certified  National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat.  Really!  We have a certificate!  You can do the same by providing food, water, cover and places for wildlife to raise their young.  It is so much fun to see all of the critters that stop by for a visit.  I have a series of posts to show you our Garden Guests.
 
If you would like to see more, please take a look at my Gardening Page  
 
  

The photos of this female Ruby Throated Hummingbird are somewhat grainy as my subject is a bit farther away than my camera lens can manage.


I wanted to share them anyway, as we frequently see this immature Redbud Tree used as a perch.  My goodness!  Just look at how tiny she is!

 
 I love this profile of the Tree Top Hummer!  Isn't she pretty?

What's happening in your back yard?

  1. That's cool to have a recognized habitat. Our cabin is surrounded by lake and forest, probably as natural as you can get. - Margy

  4. Amazing pictures Marci. Visiting from the HHGN Blog Party where my share is Think Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness. Hope everyone who reads it makes a contribution to their favorite breast cancer charity and marks their calendars for health checkups and screening exams to prevent and cure breast cancer.

  6. It's hard to catch fast, small birds - you did a great job. My bird photos are usually too blurry to share.

  7. Great photos! It's hard to catch birds before they move. I tried to catch a hawk the other day, but it kept flying away. Thanks for sharing at Funtastic Friday.

  8. Wow, she's tiny Marci. That couldn't have been easy to capture. Spring has just arrived in South Africa so we're getting our garden ready for Summer. Fortunately it rained last night so it's cooled down a bit. Love you garden and thank you so much for sharing with us at the Sweet Inspiration party this week ;-)
