Nice collection of hummers Nancy! I like the lapping shot. It's amazing how long those hummingbird tongues are isn't it?

great photos of this little beauties.


Amazing photos! Absolutely beautiful birds!


That poor "confused" hummingbird!


Funny how, throughout history, people have undergone all kinds of mental, physical and spiritual exercises to try to get to know the "prime mover," when all you need to do is look (I mean REALLY look) at one hummingbird. You then know all you need to know (or can know, really).




I really like the 'wet' photo. :)

  • Named Top 25 Bird Blog of 2015
    by Bel-Rea Vet Tech School

    Students at Bel-Rea Vet Tech School voted The Zen Birdfeeder as one of their Top 25 Bird Blogs of 2015. These students devote their lives to helping animals and find The Zen Birdfeeder blog to be a source of inspiration, especially to those students who focus their study on birds.


  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
